Hugh Jackman gets Orders To Kill

Hugh Jackman is set to work with Lee Daniels

Hugh Jackman is to star in a new movie about the death of Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

The X-Men star will play lawyer and activist William F Pepper, a friend of King's, in Orders To Kill, reports The Los Angeles Times.

The film will be based on a book by Pepper, who has argued that convicted killer James Earl Ray, who recanted his confession and died arguing his innocence, didn't fatally shoot King and that he was a scapegoat in a conspiracy.

Orders To Kill will be directed by Precious filmmaker Lee Daniels.

Hugh and Lee were previously hoping to work together on a movie called Selma about the civil rights struggle in the US, but it was reportedly scrapped for financial reasons.
