The Greatest Showman (2017)
Hugh Jackman

The Greatest Showman is a new musical from 20th Century Fox about P.T. Barnum. It stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya.

Directed by Michael Gracey, the film follows Barnum’s rise from poverty-stricken childhood to the launch of his first circus in New York. Efron is Barnum’s business partner, who falls in love with a trapeze artist played by Zendaya.

“Up until La La Land, everyone was saying there hasn’t been an original musical in 23 years,” Jackman told EW. “So the prevailing thought in Hollywood was, unless you have a brand people know, it’s not a done thing. So it just took a long time.”

Initially, Showman was a traditional biopic, but changed after Gracey suggested adding song-and-dance numbers. “I said, ‘If you’re going to call it The Greatest Showman, you should play to your strengths and we should make it a musical,’” the director says. “That ridiculous remark cost me seven years of my life.”

The film is due out in the UK in January 2018.
