Because Ghost World and Ghost Town Were Taken...
Lord knows we haven’t had Hugh Jackman’s mug splattered over these pages enough recently, so let’s throw some more Hugh news your way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has picked up the graphic novel Ghostopolis, and cast Jackman as the lead.
Ghostopolis will have Jackman working for the Supernatural Immigration Task Force, a government entity charged with tracking down errant ghosts and sending them back to Ghostopolis. However, things get screwy when a live human boy is sent over by accident somehow, and Jackman, along with a yet-to-be-cast female ghost, have to enter Ghostopolis and find him.
Sounds somewhat promising, sort of a Ghostbusters meets What Dreams May Come, though hopefully they play it seriously and don’t turn it into a screwball comedy. I dunno. Any of you geeks read the comic and can give a few more details?
