Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman, who stars in the film adaptation of Les Misérables, will reprise his performance as Wolverine in the upcoming "X-Men" film entitled "Days of Future Past," according to producer and director Bryan Singer.
"I would officially like to welcome @RealHughJackman to the cast of #Xmen Days of Future Past," tweeted Singer, who has also produced and directed previous "X-Men" films. "Very excited! More to come…"
Jackman received a Special Tony Award in 2012 and took home the Tony in 2004 for his performance in The Boy From Oz. He has also been seen on Broadway in A Steady Rain and his solo show Back on Broadway.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
