Oscar-nommed Hugh Jackman poised to topline

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hugh Jackman may star in a movie adaptation of The Drowsy Chaperone, Digital Spy said.

The actor has revealed that he has been approached to appear in the musical.

"I loved the original production on Broadway - incredibly funny and terrific, great fun," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"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 Tony-nominated play is a spoof of musicals of the 1920s.

Jackman was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in the film adaptation of Les Misérables.

He will next be seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Chappie.
