"But I think someone is working on a treatment for something...I know they are, they're working on a treatment for something."
In relation to his role for the next chapter of the story, Jackman was unsure how much he would be involved int he storyline saying, "I would like to be part of it for sure, and I don't know if it would be centered on my character.
