Hugh Jackman Says The Greatest Showman Sequel Is On The Way

*Squeals in show tunes*

The Greatest Showman 2

Our favourite musical could be getting a sequel, says Hugh Jackman.

That's right, you read that correctly. The Australian actor has hinted that work has begun on a potential The Greatest Showman sequel.

According to LadBible, Jackman was talking to BBC Radio 2 host Steve Wright and let slip that a second film to the hit musical 'could be' on the way.

The actor, who plays showman P.T. Barnum, said: "I'm being completely honest with you, there is talk of something going around but no-one is really sure.

"But I think someone is working on a treatment for something... I know they are, they're working on a treatment for something."


He later admitted that although he'd love to be a part of a second film, he isn't sure it would centre around his character.

The possibility of a sequel has been hinted at for the past few months, with Hugh Jackman even saying he was open to the idea earlier this year, and it’s no surprise - Jackman absolutely loved playing the role of circus conductor P.T Barnum.

Let's keep everything crossed.
