The 45-year-old Australian actor was due to take on the leading role as the legendary escape artist, Harry Houdini, in the eagerly anticipated show in New York City next year but will not longer be taking to the stage because of his busy schedule. "I have greatly enjoyed the collaborative process on Houdini.

The actor, who won a Tony Award for best actor in a musical in 2004 for The Boy from Oz, in which he performed for a year, added, "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."

Sacha Baron Cohen Joins Les Miserables

Sacha Baron CohenSacha Baron Cohen is set to star in Les Miserables.

The Hugo actor - who is best known for comedy roles in films including Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and Bruno - will play Monsieur Thenardier in the forthcoming musical, which will be directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Tom Hooper.

Sacha rounds of a huge cast for the film, which includes Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Russell Crowe. Glee actress Lea Michele is also in the frame for a part, playing Eponine, although Taylor Swift and Scarlett Johansson are also said to be vying for the character.

Tom - who won an Academy Award last year for his work on The King's Speech - recently confessed the movie would be shot in 2-D instead of 3-D, although he had flirted with the idea.

The Wolverine Script Being Rewritten

Hugh Jackman as WolverineThe script for The Wolverine is being rewritten. The filming for the movie - which will see Hugh Jackman reprise his role as the X-Men character - has been delayed as Hugh shoots Tom Hooper's new version of Les Miserables and director James Mangold now wants the script to be changed.

Mangold has hired Mark Bomback - who penned films such as Die Hard 4.0, Unstoppable, and Total Recall - to rework the screenplay before shooting starts next year. The movie was initially due to begin lensing later this year, but a combination of the Australian actor's commitment to Les Miserables and the weather in Japan means it may now not begin until spring 2012. It may now move to Canada instead of Japan, or a combination of the two.

The movie has been beset with problems for a while - Darren Aronofsky dropped out of filming due to personal issues, and a recent earthquake in Japan also caused delays. Despite the trouble, Hugh has revealed he is already back on the diet and fitness regime required for him to bulk up to play the muscular character: "I've literally just started. I'm taking the next two months off, pretty much, because it's a full time job, putting on a size. I'm a naturally skinny guy - genetics are not on my side with this thing - so I have to eat like a horse."

X-Men 4 and 5: Is That What You Want?

X-Men - Hugh Jackman as WolverineAt least one big screen comic book adaptation is still thriving, no reboots needed. The X-Men movie has already spawned two successful sequels (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand) and two prequels (X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the as-yet-unreleased X-Men: First Class) -- so, how about a few more?

Laura Donner, producer, says that Fox has received a treatment for another installment in the ongoing X-Men saga, and according to sources the idea will lead directly into yet another movie.

If Hugh Jackman is willing to keep putting on the claws, are you ready to keep making trips to movie theaters to watch him?

Robert Pattinson Fears Non-Twilight Films

Robert PattinsonDespite already landing roles outside of the vampire series, Robert Pattinson finds taking on work outside of the Twilight franchise “scary.”

The actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie series, says that it is more difficult to take on new roles now that he is so famous because there are so many things to consider.

“You get offered stuff that you would never dream of getting offered before, but that’s also scary. You don’t have to audition for anything. But I don’t want to do a movie just so it gets made. You have to question yourself a lot more. Before Twilight, I did any movie that I got offered, and you’d try and make the best of it afterwards. But now, you’re expected to come into the movie and provide not only economic viability, but also a performance as well. You can’t just mess around. People are like, ‘We’re employing you to be here, as a star and an actor.’ It’s difficult, and it’s scary.”

After recently working on the third Twilight movie, Eclipse, Robert is looking forward to taking on some radically different projects before getting to work on fourth installment Breaking Dawn.

“I think the tentative time for Breaking Dawn is fall next year. Depending on how things go, I’m doing a movie called Bel Ami in February, an adaptation to a Guy de Maupassant novel. And I’m doing - I hope - a Western with Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman called Unbound Captives sometime around there as well. They’ve got to try and juggle things around until everybody’s schedules work.”
