The Wolverine depicter in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', Hugh Jackman, is no longer on the run to star as Mark Antony in Steven Soderbergh's 3-D live action musical, 'Cleo'.

Hugh Jackman won't be playing Roman general Mark Antony in "Cleo". According to Variety, the Tony Award-winning actor has removed himself from discussions to star alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones in the musical movie. Though it is still unclear what really is the reason behind him bowing out from the talks, words coming out from the insiders pointed on scheduling conflicts.

On other casting news related to the 40-year-old, the Daily Telegraph reported that Jackman will be lending his voice to the Warner Bros.' animated feature film, "Guardians of Ga'Hoole". If he is indeed cast, he will most likely work with Hugo Weaving and Ryan Kwanten under the direction of director Zack Snyder.

Eyed for 2011 release, "Cleo" is a 3-D live-action rock 'n' roll musical about Cleopatra. Although no deal has been struck yet, director Steven Soderbergh has been reported to have asked Catherine Zeta-Jones to play Cleopatra. In addition, Ray Winstone has been said to be in the discussions to take the role of Julius Caesar.
