I’m never quite busy enough to have scheduling conflicts. Sure, sometimes I want to go hang out and do nothing and I find that I have to have dinner at my in-laws instead, but that’s really about it. Hugh Jackman, on the other hand, has serious scheduling conflicts. He can’t be in a 3-D live action musical because he’s going to be off doing….something.

As we noted back in October, director Steven Soderbergh is planning to make a musical about Cleopatra called Cleo. Jackman was tapped to play Marc Antony alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones as the Egyptian queen. According to Variety, he has now removed himself from the movie because he has a conflict. It’s just not clear what the actual conflict is. I’m sure there is one. Or maybe he saw Ocean’s 12 and figured the whole Soderbergh and Zeta-Jones combination was bad mojo.

The musical is also scheduled to star Ray Winstone playing Julius Caesar. It will be a rock and roll musical written by the bassist for the group Guided by Voices. The songs were written by the group and will literally pop off the screen with 3-D power. They just won’t have the Boy from Oz crooning them.
