More “Wolverine” — and song — for Jackman

OK, now I know what to do if I want to kick up a flurry of comments: whine a bit about Dan Brown’s “Angels & Demons.” Thanks to everyone who posted comments or emailed me (special thanks to the guy who suggested tequila); I will continue to soldier on. And, since we all like talking about books so much, I’ll look forward to a lively “Harry Potter” discussion later this summer.
Meanwhile, seems like everyone on earth went to “Wolverine” over the weekend: $85 million at the box office adds up to a lot of feet. (Didn’t I tell you all that it wasn’t very good? Nobody ever listens. That’s OK; I’m well aware that a few words don’t amount to a hill of beans next to Hugh Jackman’s torso.) Anyhow, all of this has led to inevitable “Wolverine” sequel talk, so the big guy can presumably brood and flash his fingernails so more. The film’s in development, but doesn’t have a writer yet.
Also happening for Jackman: a screen version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s musical “Carousel,” scripted by David Magee (“Finding Neverland”) and starring Jackman as carnival barker Billy Bigelow. Anne Hathaway, his song-and-dance partner at the Oscars, is mentioned to co-star. High time Jackman made a big-screen musical; he’s a Tony Award winner whose ease with song and dance was evident during the Oscar telecast. Hmm . . . “Wolverine: The Musical”? Just might work.
