Usually when we think of Hugh Jackman, we think of Wolverine. Or we think of...Wolverine. But now Jackman is going to be: the Avon Man. This is Hugh's best idea since Australia.
Kevin Bisch, the guy who brought us Hitch, is going to write the script and John Palermo is going to produce the film for Fox. Variety tells us this about the story:
Story follows men laid off from an auto dealership. One is reluctantly recruited into becoming an Avon salesman, and while the experience is initially emasculating, he uses his charm and good looks to become a top seller. The comedy takes on a "Full Monty" vibe when the car salesman sets out to save his financially strapped family and town by conscripting his buddies into the makeup business to win a regional contest.
Yeah, I'm sure we'll all be clamoring to the box office to get tickets to this one. Jackman needs to figure out the demographic he appeals to, stat, and stick with it.
