    Hugh Jackman Looking To Scare Up Another Hit With 'Ghostopolis'

    Despite being panned by many critics, Hugh Jackman's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" made a killing at the box office over its opening weekend, and the Aussie star hopes to continue his success with "Ghostopolis."

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hugh will leave the world of mutants behind for ghosts in an adaptation of Doug TenNapel's graphic novel.

    The story reportedly centers on a government agent working for the Supernatural Immigration Task Force, whose job it is to send escaped ghosts back to Ghostopolis. When a living boy ends up in the spirit world, Hugh's character must rescue him.

    A director has not yet been selected for the project, but Hugh will produce the supernatural action movie.
