With Wolverine going great guns at the cinema, Hugh Jackman has signed on for another comic-based pic with Ghostopolis.
Based on Doug TenNapel’s graphic novel (which has yet to hit shelves), the film will see an agent for the government’s Supernatural Immigration Task Force, responsible for packing escaped spirits home from the land of the living to the netherworld.
A living boy is accidentally sent to the other side, and Jackman’s character must team with a former girlfriend – who now happens to be a ghost- to retrieve him.
There’s no writer or director attached yet but Disney – which has set the movie up – will be hunting around for both shortly.
As for TenNapel, he's become something of a Hollywood idea factory, with several of his other books - including Monster Zoo and Creature Tech - all set up at various studios.
Is this the right move for Jackman? Or does it sound like a dodgy blend of Ghostbusters and MIB?
