Hugh Jackman will star in "Carousel", a Fox 2000's remake of the 1956 musical flick of the same title.

As Fox 2000 prepares to bring up "Carousel", a remake of the 1956 musical feature of the same title, onto the big screen, Hugh Jackman has finally been chosen to play the lead role of the project, so Variety has reported.

Last seen reprising his role as Wolverine in "X-Men: The Last Stand", the actor is billed to portray Billy Bigelow, a carnival barker whose temper unfortunately puts him in the middle of a botched robbery which leads to his death. The film then will see him being given one day to return and settle on the problems he left behind that take form in a teenager who possesses a lot of his rebellious traits.

While waiting for a deal to be reached with Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization upon rights to use the music and lyrics the duo had written for the theatrical version back in 1945, Jackman next can be spotted in "The Prestige" set to be released on October 20 this year. His subsequent projects include "The Fountain", "The Tourist", and "Wolverine", a spin-off of the X-Men series.
