Jackman signs on for Six Years?

Hugh Jackman is being linked to Six Years

Hugh Jackman is apparently attached to mystery drama Six Years.

The Oscar-nominated Les Miserables star is headed towards the big-screen adaptation of Harlan Coben's novel, said The Hollywood Reporter.

He is expected to take the lead role of Jake Fisher, who is still heart-broken after the love of his life marries another man. When her husband dies, Jake decides to attend the funeral in the hopes of seeing his former flame, only to realise that the mourning widow is not who he thought, which throws his past memories into question.

No director or writer is attached yet, although former Fox executive Tom Rothman is to produce.

This would be the second Harlan book to be adapted for the big screen. Tell No One was made into a French-language film in 2006, and is being remade by Warner Bros, with Ben Affleck attached to direct.

Hugh, who was praised for his performance as reformed convict Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper's musical remake, is filming revenge thriller Prisoners alongside Jake Gyllenhaal.

He will reprise his Wolverine alter-ego in James Mangold's sequel The Wolverine, a role which he is also expected to return to for Bryan Singer's sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
