We haven’t been covering The Greatest Showman much for some reason. It’s a musical about the life of P.T. Barnum that stars Hugh Jackman as Barnum, Zac Efron as his right hand man, Michelle Williams as Barnum’s lady friend and Zendaya as Efron’s trapeze artist love interest. Seems like something worth paying attention to, especially given today’s lack of live-action musicals on the big screen.
Today The Greatest Showman gets another awesome cast member in the form of Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation’s Rebecca Ferguson. She will play a Swedish opera singer. Of course.
Ferguson kind of took the world by storm with her Mission: Impossible role, so it’s exciting to see what kind of roles she takes in the fall out from that. Along with the next Mission: Impossible, she’s going to be in the upcoming The Girl on the Train and some science fiction thriller called Life. That’s swell, but I’m way more excited about seeing her sing and dance with Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron. It might be too much charm to handle.
