aaron sorkin teams up with hugh jackman for houdini play

Between Aaron Sorkin's The Social Network and Hugh Jackman's EVERYTHING except Australia, we are going into this very optimistically!

Sorkin is writing the book for a Broadway play about Harry Houdini, with Jackman set to star as the legendary magician.

…But it gets better! The score is being composed by Danny Elfman!!!

Sorkin's previous Broadway playwriting experience includes A Few Good Men, before it was adapted into a film starring Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise.

He also wrote The Farnsworth Invention, which ran from late 2007 to early 2008.

Here's what Elfman had to say about Sorkin's progress on the play, which may hit stages as early as the beginning of 2012:

“He’s writing away. We all have high hopes that Aaron’s going to come through and do some good stuff.”

We're def excited about this one! Between Jackman's acting abilities and incredible good looks, and Sorkin's phenomenal writing abilities, we're thinking this could be pretty amazing!

Are U excited about the prospect of Hugh playing Houdini on Broadway?
