Oscar nominee and Tony winner Hugh Jackman is attached to star in Six Years, a new thriller based on the upcoming novel by author Harlan Coben, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No director or screenwriter are attached to the project at this time.
The story follows Jake Fisher, who sees Natalie, the love of his life, marry someone else. Six years later, he learns that the man she married passed away, and he heads to the funeral to try catch a glimpse of Natalie one more time. But the widow by the grave isn't her at all, and thus begins our mystery. Coben's Six Years is a tale of a life turned completely upside down.
Jackman has a busy spring and summer ahead, promoting James Mangold's The Wolverine, and shooting both Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners and Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Jackman earned an Oscar nod for his role as Jean Valjean in the recent Les Misérables movie. He nabbed a Tony Award and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for playing famed musician Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz. He also appeared on Broadway in A Steady Rain and his solo show Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway.
