Hugh Jackman and Robert Pattinson in "Unbound Captives"

Posted: May 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hugh Jackman and Robert Pattinson in "Unbound Captives"Submit Comment
Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener) and Robert Pattinson (Twilight) will star in the period drama "Unbound Captives," with actress Madeleine Stowe (We Were Soldiers) making her directorial debut from a script she wrote.

Though Stowe is a newcomer behind the camera, getting the job and landing that cast is a payoff for her risky decision to turn down millions of dollars for the script in 1993. Under pseudonym O.C. Humphrey, Stowe teamed with her husband, actor Brian Benben, to write "Unbound Captives" as a star vehicle for herself.

She would have played a woman (now to be played by Weisz) whose husband is killed and her two children kidnapped by a Comanche war party in 1859. She is rescued by a frontiersman, to be played by Jackman. Pattinson will play the son.

Fox offered Stowe $3 million, and later $5 million, for her script, with Ridley Scott poised to direct and Russell Crowe to star. She turned down what was among the highest sums offered a first-time scribe because there was no promise she would be anything more than screenwriter.

They are eyeing a year-end production start.

This sounds like the title of a bondage film, hahaha. I think they are revering to Jackman being a big fan of musicals, he did sing and dance at the Emmy's. Whatever, I think he is a good actor and I really don't care if he is a closet case.

the only insulting jackman deserves is the fact that he went along with 20th century fox to f*ck up x-men further than it already has been
