Jackman has formed a company with new partner John Palermo…whom he met when the latter was Bryan Singer’s assistant on “X-Men.”
Jackman would seem a good candidate to broaden the audience appeal of tuners. He is most readily identifiable to moviegoers for the “X-Men” character Wolverine and the vampire hunter Van Helsing.
He’ll continue on the action track: Jackman and Palermo will cut their teeth as producers by getting involved in the third installment of “X-Men,” as well as a “Wolverine” spinoff feature “Troy” scribe David Benioff is penning at Fox.
He is expected to return as Logan/Wolverine in both films as well, of course.
