In a recent interview the lead actor suggested that a sequel "could be" happening but he's "not sure".

"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.
"The other thing is, it did take eight years to get it made and that wasn't all eight years of convincing people. It takes a long time to write stuff."
Jackman is set to tour the UK and Europe in May & June singing songs from Broadway musicals and The Greatest Showman. He brings the show to Dublin's 3Arena on May 30th & 31st before finishing the tour at this year's Glastonbury.
