Hugh Jackman recently revealed he is matched, and he and manager Michael Gracy have confirmed they are working on a remedy to get a follow-up. Now Jackman’s co-star Zac Efron, that plays rich playwright Phillip Carlyle, has also said he’s up for round two.
There’s been a fantastic deal of chatter about a possible sequel to The Greatest Showman ever because of the film’s release in 2017. Appearing in an episode of The Graham Norton Show, which broadcasts this day, Efron stated he didn’t know for sure about what was coming next but was in favor of another Best Showman movie.

“Hugh (Jackman) is functioning on all sorts of things, including a one-man show,” he told host Norton.
What is next? I don’t understand but I hope there is a sequel.” Jackman has confirmed plans are for a sequel.
When he was asked about the smash hit musical, showing the news that fans were waiting for the actor, who was speaking to BBC Radio 2
He said: “The real answer is could be’. I am not sure. I’m being honest with you, there is the talk of something moving around but no one is sure. “
“I believe right now there’s more emphasis being placed on what will happen with…’ I had been doing my series, will there be another live version’. Nobody is actually sure so that is the honest truth.
“But I believe somebody is working on a remedy for something… I know there, they’re working on a treatment for something.”
When asked if he would do it’ in the drop of a hat’, Hugh played with his cards fairly near his chest.
I would love to be a part of it, for certain, whether it’d be centered in my character and that I really don’t know. The issue is, it did take to get the first film made and that wasn’t all eight decades of convincing men and women. It takes a long time to write stuff.”
During a meeting with BBC Radio 5 Live earlier this season, Jackman also confessed he’d jump at the opportunity, stating: “When a real opportunity came up in which it felt like the ideal thing to do, then yes, I would get the very best hat back out.”
Obviously, before any of the of all walks, Efron has yet another movie in his head, together with the coming launch of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where he stars as serial killer Ted Bundy.
“I had a lot of reservations about playing a killer and in this genre of movie,” Efron said.
“I wasn’t interested in anything, but I had been interested in the emotional aspect of whether he had been capable of genuine love.”
Admitting he wasn’t sure about the function initially, he continued: “I had been very reluctant to do it, but I knew I could. I just didn’t want to leap at something which could be seen as a shot.
“It was a unique experience and not what anybody expects. It makes me proud.”
