Hugh Jackman has pulled out of a new chick flick to concentrate on bulking up for the next Wolverine blockbuster.
Last spring, the Australian screen star signed on to play an unemployed car dealer who becomes Avon’s top selling door-to-door rep in the Avon Man. However, this week, Jackman pulled out of the project — which was due to start filming later this year — and will instead focus on preparing to reprise his role as a muscled mutant in the sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Deadline.com has learned.
Producers are in the process of scrambling to cast Hugh’s replacement. Jackman hasn’t wiped his hands of the project just yet — he will remain on tap as one of the film’s producers..
