 Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman is set to play circus impresario P.T. Barnum in a new musical Biopic known appropriately as The Greatest Showman on Earth. The film was originally set to be released Christmas of 2016 but it has now been pushed to Christmas 2017. The film directed by Michael Gracey, is being pushed so it can relocate in order to accommodate the Next and final installment of the “Wolverine” franchise which is due in 2017.

This will tell the the story of American showman P.T. Barnum who founded the famous traveling circus group The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

As of now there has been no word in regards to the rest of the cast.
