In a casting call for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Prisoners, the Valley Independent reports that Hugh Jacksman (X-Men, Wolverine, Van Helsing) might have been cast in the film being directed by Antoine Fuqua. “Local officials said they’ve been told Hugh Jackman is attached to the movie.” We’ll let you know when the news is officially announced. Aaron Guzikowski’s screenplay for Prisoners is considered a hot commodity — and was named one of the best unproduced scripts of 2009. Guzikowski’s dark tale centers on a small-town man who, after his daughter and her friend are kidnapped and the cops fail to solve the crime, takes matters into his own hands, holding hostage the person he suspects committed the crime. He also comes into conflict with the big-city detective assigned to the case.
