Hugh Jackman Takes the Lead in ‘Six Years’

Hugh Jackman will star in the Harlan Coben adaptation Six YearsHugh Jackman is attached to star in the adaptation of Harlan Coben's upcoming novel Six Years. Paramount Pictures beat out 20th Century Fox and at least three other bidders for the movie rights.

The story centers on Jake Fisher, a man who, six years ago, watched the love of his life Natalie marry another man. When he discovers an obituary of the man she married, Jake goes to the funeral, in hopes of seeing Natalie. He learns that the widow is not Natalie, forcing him to question all of his past memories.

No screenwriter or director has been attached to the project as of yet. Tom Rothman is in talks to produce alongside Mark Gordon.

Hugh Jackman will next be seen in the highly-anticipated sequel The Wolverine this summer, and Prisoners, slated for release this fall.

        I DON'T KNOW but I think this film has potential. Seems like an unusual film. Hugh Jackman is a well thought of actor overall, but like I said the story looks good so far. The outcome of whether this is the case is too soon to tell
