    Michael Gracey To Direct Hugh Jackman Musical 'The Greatest Showman On Earth'

    We just got some whiplash turning around to look in the archives, but it looks like a long-ago mooted Hugh Jackman musical -- that we figured was left buried in the sands of time -- is still very much alive.

    James Mangold To Direct 'The Wolverine'

    After a period where it looked as if Fox would take a mulligan on "The Wolverine" and bump the film to 2013 or beyond, it now looks like they've found their director. James Mangold, who has dabbled in various genres from musical biopic ("Walk The Line"), to western ("3:10 To Yuma") and horror ("Identity"), is prepared to take on his first comic book adaptation, and the announcement suggests he's the mutual pick from Fox and Hugh Jackman's camp. Mangold appears to be the top choice among an uninspired trio of potential helmers that included Antoine Fuqua and Gavin O'Connor, otherwise known as Guys You Employ When They Are Represented By The Sa...

    Paul Bettany May Escape From Screen Gems Purgatory To Play Inspector Javert In 'Les Miserables'

    So, you might not be aware of this, but even with the awards buzz around his role in "A Single Man," Colin Firth wasn't the first choice to star in "The King's Speech," the film that became a phenomenon, and won the British veteran his first Oscar. In fact, the part was originally offered to Paul Bettany, star of, among others, "A Beautiful Mind," "Master and Commander" and "Dogville." Unfortunately, for Bettany, he was coming off a lengthy shoot for vampire actioner "Priest" (yes, it shot that long ago), and the actor turned the role down to spend time with his young family: an admirable decision, but one that the actor must view with some r...

    Will Hugh Jackman Trade In His 'Wolverine' Claws For 'Snow White And The Huntsman'?

    It was bound to happen, and we're surprised it didn't happen sooner. But with "The Wolverine" now on hold thanks to the double whammy of Darren Aronofsky bailing on the film and the ongoing aftereffects of the devastating earthquake in Japan where the film was set to shoot, Universal are hoping they...
