Hugh Jackman production co winds down

SEED Productions, a venture between Hugh Jackman, Deborra-Lee Furness and producer John Palermo, has dissolved, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The production company launched in 2006 with plans to produce 4 – 5 films a year in Australia with 20th Century Fox, an output and development deal with Foxtel, a theatre company and an artists management division, as well as a swag of film and TV development deals in the US.

In that time it produced the films X-Men: The Last Stand, Deception, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the short-lived Viva Laughlin (pictured).

For Foxtel SEED produced An Aussie Goes Barmy, An Aussie Goes Bolly and The Directors’ Series.

Jackman and Palermo still remain partners on Barnum, a musical that is being written by Jenny Bick, and a remake of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.
