Jackman to Star in TenNapel's 'Ghostopolis'

Jackman to Star in Ghostopolis

One comic book-based film down, and already X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Hugh Jackman is eyeing another.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackman is attached to the film version of Ghostopolis, an upcoming graphic novel from Doug TenNapel which was recently set up at Disney. Jackman will produce the film through his Seed Prods, along with the Gotham Group.

From the trade: The story centers on a man who works for the government's Supernatural Immigration Task Force. His job is to send ghosts who have escaped into our world back to Ghostopolis. When a living boy accidentally is sent to the other side, the agent must team with a female ghost (and former flame) to bring him back.

The news marks the latest Hollywood buzz for TenNapel, whose Tommysaurus Rex is set up at Universal, Creature Tech at New Regency and Monster Zoo at Paramount.
