In a recent interview with the BBC, The Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman said that he'd be keen to reprise his role of P.T Barnum in a sequel to the popular movie musical.

"If a genuine opportunity came up where it felt like the right thing to do, then yep, I'd get the top hat back out," Hugh said.

"We have a situation in the business where the company that did it has been sold to Disney, so there are a lot of spinning plates right now.

"I'm not sure what they would do, but it did take a while to get the first one up, and it's not to be underestimated how difficult it is to get a musical up and going."

"But it's clear to me and to everyone that people love these characters. I loved this movie, I loved this character and it was one of the great joys of my life."

So while he's keen for the sequel to happen, it sounds like it might be a wee while away yet!
