Hugh Jackman to Play Nowhere Man?

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.
