Hugh Jackman Plants Seed For 'Incarceron'
Hugh Jackman plays with his kids Oscar and Ava in the snow around their West Village apartment in New York City earlier this week.
Fox 2000 and Seed Prods., Hugh‘s production company with John Palermo, will soon adapt UK author Catherine Fisher‘s young-adult novel Incarceron for the silver screen.
Incarceron, which was released in the U.S. a few weeks ago, has already made its way onto the New York Times children’s bestsellers list. The sequel Sapphique is due out next January.

Plotline: Incarceron – a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology – a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber – chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here.
In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison – a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device – a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn’s escape is born.
