Looking to expand his comic book material repertoire even further, Hugh Jackman is working with Marc Guggenheim (Eli Stone) and Virgin Comics to create Nowhere Man, a comic series that could eventually be turned into a film vehicle for the Australian actor. Variety indicates that "the concept is a futuristic world where mankind has traded privacy for safety." Ah, not-so-subtle political allusions. Can't beat 'em.
John Palermo of Seed Productions said, "This is our first comic, and we feel the concept is transferable to other arenas, perhaps first as a videogame, and then a movie."
Jackman is still in his native country working on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, reprising the role that made him a household name eight years ago. Virgin Comics has had a history of working with filmmakers and actors on their graphic novel passion projects, including works by Nicolas and Weston Cage and Guy Ritchie.
