Jackman locks up Fox deal

Seed Prods., the newly named producing venture headed by Hugh Jackman and John Palermo, has sown a first-look deal at 20th Century Fox. Pact is an outgrowth of Jackman’s work as the signature “X-Men” character Wolverine, and the deal calls for Seed to steer a David Benioff-scripted spinoff film that Jackman will topline after “X3” wraps. Jackman and Palermo will produce “Wolverine” with Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel’s Avi Arad. While Jackman hasn’t produced a film yet, he has participated in the behind-the-scenes on “X3.” He got a taste of crisis management when helmer Matthew Vaughn abruptly departed and Brett Ratner was hired to replace him. “It got to be a roller-coaster ride there, but I wasn’t worried because the script is so strong,” Jackman said. “Matthew had his reasons but helped make the movie better before he left. Brett has come in with a lot of enthusiasm and full understanding of the franchise. It has been a real learning curve, as has been putting together the script on ‘Wolverine.’ That project is a good start for me as producer, because I have intimate knowledge of the character.”
