It's a never ending slate of work for Australian actor Hugh Jackman as he signs up to star in the new thriller "Prisoners" for Alcon Entertainment. The picture is to be directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Incendies") off the script written by Aaron Guzikowski ("Contraband").

"Prisoners" centers on a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against the big city detective assigned to the case.

Do not fear "X-Men" movie fans, Jackman's involvement with "Prisoners" does not mean that he won't have time to film the sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." He'll be reprising his role as the irritated and sharp-clawed Canadian later on this year prior to filming "Prisoners."

Jackman will next be seen starring in the big screen adaptation of "Les Misérables," scheduled to be released on December 14, 2012.
