Hugh Jackman Joins Circus Musical/P.T. Barnum Biopic!

Posted on 04 August 2009 by Quaid

If you tuned in to the Oscars this year, you got to see another side of Hugh Jackman…that of the “song and dance man.”

HughJackmanOscarsIt was no secret that Jackman has musical skills, but I’m guessing his performance was surprising for most. Now, Fox has decided to cash in on the man’s talent, producing a musical starring Wolverine himself.

According to the trades, the film, currently titled The Greatest Showman on Earth, will be a musical biopic of entertainer/businessman P.T. Barnum. Laurence Mark, who executive produced Jackman’s Oscar telecast, will produce the film, and Jenny Bicks, who helped script the event, will write the movie.

I don’t know much about the life of Barnum, but having Jackman playing a singing circus man sounds all right to me.

There is also talk about Anne Hathaway joining the project. She’s adorable.

    I hope that it’s a “musical biopic” in the same way that Beyond the Sea started out as…before it drifted off into formula. This might be kinda good if it’s handled creatively.
