Hugh Jackman has revealed that he would do a sequel of The Greatest Showman.

The actor played P.T. Barnum in the incredibly successful 2017 film and recently announced his very own world tour, in which he will perform songs from the film and famous Broadway numbers, on front of live audiences.

The father-of-two has since revealed that he would be up for a sequel of the popular film, as he appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live and said: “If a genuine opportunity came up where it felt like the right thing to do, then yep, I’d get the top hat back out.”

“We have a situation in the business where the company that did it has been sold to Disney, so there are a lot of spinning plates right now.”

“I’m not sure what they would do, but it did take a while to get the first one up, and it’s not to be underestimated how difficult it is to get a musical up and going,” the actor continued.

“But it’s clear to me and to everyone that people love these characters. I loved this movie, I loved this character and it was one of the great joys of my life.”

Although the 50-year-old saw huge success from The Greatest Showman, the actor also revealed that he had his heart set on two other huge musical roles in the early 2000s: “I really wanted to be in Moulin Rouge, I auditioned for that one. Chicago was another movie that I wanted to be in, and I kind of let that one go.”
