Hugh Jackman as in 1989! Rocks a Mullet for His New Film ‘Chappie’
Wolverine takes the future to past! Hugh Jackman started 2014 by going back in time to the 1980s as he shares a picture of his new hairstyle — a mullet for his movie Chappie. The photo shows Jackman with his brown locks cropped short in the front and on the sides, with tufts of curls peeking out from the back.
“Day 1 on Chappie! Vincent is born, rocking the mullet,” the Les Miserables actor captioned the Instagram photo on Tuesday, Jan. 7. “Working with Neill Blomkamp in SA. This film is rad.(sic)”
Jackman’s upcoming movie is directed by Neill Blomkamp, who is best known for his previous projects that include District 9 and Elysium. Blomkamp co-wrote the screenplay with wife Terri Tatchell. Not much else has been revealed about the plot except that it’s a blend of science fiction and comedy, based on Blomkamp’s short film Tetra Vaal.
In addition to Jackman, the film also stars Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver and Die Antwoord. Chappie is set to hit theaters in 2015.
