Hugh Jackman To Film "Carousel"
That musical is a perfect fit for Hugh Jackman and could make a terrific movie. The original film version is too tame. But a new one would hopefully capitalize on the dark, painful aspects of the show revealed in the '94 Broadway revival. His talk of returning to Broadway -- maybe in "Pal Joey" -- has faded off a bit. But Jackman certainly has plenty of movies coming out: "Wolverine" is still in development and there's "The Fountain," "The Prestige," indie flick "The Tourist," the current Woody Allen trifle "Scoop" and Baz Luhrmann's next massive project.
