Following last weekend’s debut of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” news comes that its star, Hugh Jackman, is set to produce and appear in another comic book movie, “Ghostopolis.”

Written and illustrated by Doug TenNapel ("Creature Tech," "Monster Zoo"), the forthcoming “Ghostopolis” is the story of a man who works for the Supernatural Immigration Task Force, a fictional government agency tasked with sending ghosts who’ve escaped into our world back to Ghostopolis. When a living child is accidentally lost in Ghostopolis, Jackman’s character must team with a female ghost (and former flame) to bring the kid back.

The Hollywood Reporter has Jackman co-producing “Ghostopolis” through his Seed Productions company, which he runs with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and partner John Palermo.

TenNapel’s “Ghostopolis” will be published through Scholastic. No release date has been announced.
