Hugh Jackman Exits 'Houdini' Broadway Musical

Hugh Jackman will no longer be starring in the Broadway musical Houdini after being attached to the project for several years, Variety reports.

“I have greatly enjoyed the collaborative process on Houdini,” the 45-year-old actor said in a statement. “Ultimately, though, I wasn’t able to commit to the time this role will require. I have tremendous respect and admiration for the creative team and I wish everyone the best. I know they’re well on their way to making something extraordinary.”

Hugh was attached from the start of the musical about five years ago. Before his departure, the musical was set to premiere in 2014. No word if the timeline will remain the same.
