Jackman may join the circus with Barnum musical
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Hugh Jackman is turning into one of Hollywood's biggest showmen.
Jackman may be following his song-and-dance triumph as host of the Academy Awards with a role as legendary showman P.T. Barnum in the musical tale "The Greatest Showman on Earth."
The film about Barnum and his three-ring circus is in development at 20th Century Fox. It is being produced by Laurence Mark, who produced last February's Oscar ceremony featuring Jackman as host.
A studio spokesman says the Barnum script is being written with Anne Hathaway in mind to co-star. Hathaway worked with Jackman on one of the Oscar show's musical numbers.
Jackman is a Tony winner for the Broadway musical "The Boy From Oz."
