Hugh Jackman May Go Nowhere
Date: March 25, 2008
By: Kellvin Chavez
Hugh Jackman and "Eli Stone" co-creator Marc Guggenheim are teaming with Virgin Comics to create "Nowhere Man," an original comicbook series that is designed to be transferred to the bigscreen as a Jackman vehicle, reports Variety.
Story was being kept under wraps, but Jackson's Seed Productions partner John Palermo said it features a protagonist reminiscent of the one Will Smith played in "I Am Legend." The concept is a futuristic world where mankind has traded privacy for safety, a premise that sprouted with Seed, Virgin CEO Sharad Devarajan and chief creative officer Gotham Chopra.
"This is our first comic, and we feel the concept is transferable to other arenas, perhaps first as a videogame, and then a movie," Palermo said.
Guggenheim has also written installments of "Amazing Spider-man" and "Wolverine" for Marvel Comics. Jackman is in Australia, starring for 20th Century Fox in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," the spinoff movie that will hit theaters May 2009.
Said Jackman: "I've had so much fun in the graphic novel world with the 'X-Men' franchise that I wanted to get even more involved. I'm excited to work with Virgin and Marc and create a compelling character and story that hopefully will also make it to the bigscreen."

Re: Hugh Jackman May Go Nowhere
Well, it's the same title as one of my favorite Beatles songs, that could be a good sign.
Sounds cool. I just hope he comes back to NY and does another Broadway show soon too.
