Hugh Jackman set to star in adaptation of Harlan Coben's Six Years

After knocking it out of the park in LES MISERABLES, Hugh Jackman is now moving on to something a little more novel.

The actor has taken the lead in the adaptation of Harlan Coben's upcoming novel, SIX YEARS. Yes, it's another case of a book that has yet to come out, but already has a movie in the works. Must be a good one. Corben's last five novels have debuted at the top of the New York Times best seller list. So, that might be why they aren't hesitant. Four studios were vying for the material, and Paramount was the one who defeated them all.

Jackman will play, "Jake Fisher, who watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man. Six years have passed when Jake comes across the other man's obituary. He resolves to attend the funeral, hoping to catch a glimpse of Natalie. But the mourning widow is not Natalie, throwing all of his past memories with the woman into question."

For the curious, Coben's SIX YEARS will hit shelves on March 19th. No other details were given on the film at this time.

Extra Tidbit: For my own curiosity-- did anyone actually like SWORDFISH? Aside from the boobs.
