Hugh Jackman is set to star in a remake of 1956 musical Carousel.
Fox 2000 is looking to remake the movie with Jackman starring and co-producing, reports Variety.
A deal is being negotiated to use the original Rodgers and Hammerstein music and lyrics from the 1945 stage musical.
Jackman would play Billy Bigelow, a carnival barker whose temper puts him in the middle of a botched robbery and leads to his death.
Stuck in purgatory, he's given one day to return and fix the problems he left behind - namely a teenager who has a lot of his rebellious traits.
