New Article: Jackman Calls 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Biggest Fox Movie!

"The hype for X-Men: Days of Future Past continually grows and expectations are very high, and deservedly so. But star Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine for the seventh time in the X-Men movie franchise, may have just raised the bar even higher.

In an interview with Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie.com), Jackman talked about again working with director Bryan Singer, who helmed the first two X-Men films. In his comments Jackman included some high expectations for the movie.

"Bryan has such an incredible brain. This is certainly the biggest movie Fox has made outside of Avatar, so there's pressure from all angles," the Australian actor said. "But he's buzzing, and he's confident. He's gone deeper emotionally, and it's a great ensemble piece."

Avatar is the highest-grossing movie of all-time, so that's certainly a high bar to set.

Jackman also revealed Wolverine's state in the new X-Men movie and the character's thoughts about travelling through time.

"He's a warrior and he can't hide from that anymore, even if the consequences are going to be messy and painful," he said. "If there's an era for Wolverine, its the 70s. The hair, the mutton chops, you can smoke cigars everywhere...everything about Wolverine seems more at home in the 70s."

The actor said that after the third movie, X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006, he assumed the franchise was finished.

"I thought that was it," Jackman said. "There was already talk about doing a younger version, and I was certainly talking about Wolverine and trying to drum up interest in that. I thought the idea of another X-Men movie was done, so this was a surprise. And a welcome one."

Finally, Singer reveals an exchange between Wolverine and Young Magneto, pllayed by Michael Fassbender:

"There's a line that Fassbender says that may make it. He says to Wolverine, 'You spend the next 50 years trying to bring me down?' Wolverine says, 'Pretty much.' Magneto says, 'How did that go for you?"

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters on May 23."

New Article: 'Houdini' To Move Forward Without Hugh Jackman!


Posted on 03 Jan 2014 by Admin
Projects icon


"The film and theater actor Hugh Jackman, whose recent Broadway shows have been huge box office hits, has dropped out of “Houdini,” a new musical in development that had been aiming for Broadway as soon as the 2014-15 season.

Mr. Jackman, in a statement provided by his publicist on Monday, said the problem was scheduling. While Mr. Jackman wasn’t specific, most Broadway musicals can involve a year’s worth of rehearsals, workshops and performances from its stars.

“I have greatly enjoyed the collaborative process on ‘Houdini,’ ” said Mr. Jackman, who won a Tony Award for best actor in a musical in 2004 for “The Boy from Oz,” in which he performed for a year. “Ultimately, though, I wasn’t able to commit to the time this role will require.”

One of the producers developing the musical, Scott Sanders, said in a separate statement: “Hugh has been terrific to have on this part of our journey. We will continue to move forward with our remarkable creative team as they craft this ambitious new musical.”

Mr. Sanders did not return phone or email messages on Monday evening seeking further comment.

“Houdini,” which has been in the works for several years as a vehicle for Mr. Jackman, has had a troubled road. The musicians Danny Elfman and David Yazbek and the lyricist Glenn Slater were attached to the show at various times; the current composer is the Tony winner Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked,” “Pippin”). The journalist and novelist Kurt Andersen worked on the musical’s book, as did the Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin; the latest book writer is David Ives (“Venus in Fur”). The Tony winner Jack O’Brien is attached to direct.

Mr. Jackman had been set to participate in a closed-door reading of parts of “Houdini” this month. But Wayne Wolfe, a spokesman for the producers, said that reading did not take place.

Variety first reported the actor’s departure from the project."

New Article: Hugh Jackman Says He May Not Do The Next Wolverine Movie!


Posted on 10 Dec 2013 by Admin

"It's been a big week for X-Men news. Yesterday, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer announced - via Twitter - that X-Men: Apocalypse would be headed to theaters in 2016. It was then revealed that Simon Kinberg, writer and producer of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, has inked a three-year deal with the studio with the intention of developing a "Marvel-style" movie universe.

But what of individual character spinoff films? At the very least, we know that a third Wolverine film is in development. However, in a recent interview with Vanity Fair for the release of The Wolverine Blu-ray/DVD, Hugh Jackman said he may be nearing the end of his tenure as the character.

"I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie," the actor said. "I am really proud of this movie and I am excited to develop something with [The Wolverine director] Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be [for me to star in it] and if it doesn’t reach those, I won’t be doing it."

The film is still in the very early stages of development, according to the actor, so it's unclear how quickly Fox wants to move on this project. "No there is not [a script in place]," Jackman said, "but Jim Mangold and I were literally on the phone last night talking about ideas but there is no script and no writer yet so it’s a way off."

Jackman is 45, and with X-Men: Apocalypse, Jeff Wadlow's X-Force, and a possible Mangold-helmed third Wolverine-focused film in development, he could be looking at 5+ additional years of playing the immortal character. It doesn't sound as though the actor is entirely on-board with that notion. So the question becomes: Will Fox recast Wolverine? And if they do, will that character remain - essentially - the centerpiece of the X-Men cinematic universe?

We will keep you updated as details emerge. In the meantime, leave your thoughts below!

Would you like to see a new Wolverine?"

New Appearance: Hugh Jackman Attended The "David Lynch Foundation Gala" Images!

"Road to recovery! Hugh Jackman made his first red carpet appearance since revealing on Instagram Nov. 21 that he underwent treatment for skin cancer on his nose. The 45-year-old actor wore a small band-aid on his nose while attending the David Lynch Foundation Presents: Change Begins Within Benefit Gala in New York City on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Jackman flashed a big smile to photographers while proudly posing on the red carpet. The Wolverine star looked handsome in a dark suit while standing beside wife Deborra-Lee Furness at the Conrad New York hotel. Jackman has wife of 17 years to thank for convincing him to go to a doctor for a mark on his nose.

"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right!" Jackman captioned a photo of himself with a large bandage on his nose on Instagram Nov. 21. "I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"

New Article: Hugh Jackman On 'The Wolverine' Sequel & "Chappie"!


Posted on 29 Nov 2013 by Admin
Projects icon

Hello everybody,


"Just as The Wolverine claws its way toward DVD/Blu-ray on Dec. 3 (with a Digital HD release on Nov. 19), talk is heating up about a possible sequel. For his part, star Hugh Jackman has neither confirmed nor denied whether he’ll sign on to play muttonchopped mutant Logan for an eighth time… but the odds are looking good. “I was on the phone with Jim Mangold last night,” Jackman told EW. “There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet.”

Jackman insists that his lapsing contract with Fox, which reportedly will need to be renegotiated after X-Men: Days of Future Past premieres in May, doesn’t mean he’s leaving the franchise in limbo. “I started with a two-picture deal on the first two [X-Men films], and from that point on, it’s been movie by movie — not just me, but Fox and Jim and everyone,” he says. “I do want to do it with Jim and with [producer] Lauren Shuler-Donner because we had such a great experience. I’m really proud of The Wolverine.”

The star believes he’s mentally more committed to the character than he’s ever been. “I kind of am enjoying him more than ever… Being older helps playing Wolverine. He’s 200 or 300 years old — no one really knows — and he’s sort of world-weary. The actual working out gets harder and harder, I’ll admit.”

Still, Jackman insists the creative circumstances would have to be right for him to resume his grueling diet-and-exercise regimen in order to don the white tank top again: “I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one,” says Jackman. “I love the character, he’s kind of like a best friend to me, and I don’t ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted. … I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward.”

A Wolverine sequel isn’t the only thing in the coffers for Jackman, who will begin shooting Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie early next year (other principles in the film are already in production, he confirms). “It’s a very, very, very good script — very interesting,” he says of the sci-fi crime drama. “I can’t wait to work with Neill. … It’s going to surprise people in a lot of ways. He’s a real visionary.” Jackman reveals his character is named Vincent, and he’ll face off against Dev Patel’s Deon. Though the actors stand at equal height, Jackman’s weight advantage and extensive combat training gives hints that it might not be an entirely fair fight. “Good,” laughs the actor. “Crush him! I’m not in it for a close call.”

Beyond Chappie, Jackman is also still signed up for a biographical musical about Harry Houdini featuring music by Wicked and Pippin composer Stephen Schwartz. Jackman might also take his soaring tenor (which scored him an Oscar nod for Les Misérables) back to the big screen to play caddish Latin lover Aldolpho in the adaptation of Tony-nominated The Drowsy Chaperone. “I loved the original production on Broadway — incredibly funny and terrific, great fun,” he recalls. “I was not sure how that would translate [to film], but the script at the moment is wonderful. I think they’re trying to put the movie together, I don’t think it’s fully together yet, but they are talking to me about it, and I’m very interested in it.”

The only musical for which he definitely won’t be running scales any time soon (or ever)? Ironically, one about Wolverine. That musical could one day come to the Great White Way, but “not with me,” vows Jackman. Then he adds, “But, hey, they did Rocky. Who would have thought?”"

"Tony Award-winning actor Hugh Jackman will host TNT's annual Christmas in Washington, a holiday special covering a White House gala in Washington, D.C.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the Prisoners star will be joined by the Backstreet Boys, Sheryl Crow, Anna Kendrick, Janelle Monáe and Train’s Pat Monahan—all of whom will participate in special performances for President Barack Obama.

The concert, which will be produced by Emmy-winning George Stevens, Jr. and Michael Stevens, is a holiday tradition attended by the president and the first lady every year, along with several other VIPs in Washington.

USA Today reports that the 32nd anniversary of Christmas in Washington will be taped at the National Building Museum on Dec. 15 and will premiere on TNT on Dec. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT."

New Article: Hugh Jackman Speaks Out About Skin Cancer!


Posted on 24 Nov 2013 by Admin

"Star regrets he had to cancel awards season events for 'Prisoners'

Hugh Jackman gave his first interview to Variety on Friday afternoon since announcing this week that doctors had removed skin cancer cells from his nose.

On Thursday, Jackman posted a snapshot on Instagram of his bandaged nose, telling his followers to use sunscreen. The 45-year-old actor said he had been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, a treatable condition when discovered early.

“Look, I’m glad it’s all done,” Jackman said in a phone interview. “I’m a good example of making sure you get checkups and listening to your wife,” who urged Jackman to see a doctor after noticing a red spot.

“I’m glad we caught it,” Jackman added. “I had great doctors. I’m a little sore, but very relieved.”

After undergoing a medical procedure, Jackman regretted that he had to cancel several appearances in support of the awards campaign for Warner Bros.’ “Prisoners,” including panels for the Screen Actors Guild and a lunch for broadcast critics that was attended by his co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Melissa Leo and the film’s director, Denis Villeneuve, and scribe Aaron Guzikowski on Friday.

Jackman’s performance in “Prisoners” received strong reviews when the film opened in September and has landed Oscar buzz in this year’s best actor race.

Earlier today, Gyllenhaal said in an interview with Variety that “Prisoners,” a challenging R-rated drama that has grossed $115 million worldwide, would not have been made without Jackman as its star.

When told this and other compliments from his cast, Jackman deadpanned: “I should not turn up to more of these roundtables. They are never that nice to me in person.”"
