(CBS/AP) Hugh Jackman is planning to work his magic on Broadway once again.
The Tony-winner, whose recent one-man stage show broke box office records, is handcuffing himself to a future musical about Harry Houdini.
Producers said Wednesday that Jackman will star as the famed illusionist in "Houdini," which is scheduled to reach Broadway during the 2013-14 season.
"I have been deeply fascinated by the life of Harry Houdini since I was young, and in many ways I've been preparing for this role my whole life. I am thrilled to be collaborating with this collection of artists who are all at the top of their game," Jackman said in a statement, obtained by the New York Times.
Academy Award and six-time Emmy Award winner Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing," "The Social Network") will write the story, and three-time Academy Award and four-time Grammy Award winner Stephen Schwartz ("Wicked," "Pippin," "Godspell") will write music and lyrics.
This won't be the first time Jackman has played a magician - he and Christian Bale played rival illusionists in the 2006 film "The Prestige."
"Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway" closed Sunday at the Broadhurst Theatre after having earned more than $2 million in its final week. It was the highest weekly gross recorded by the Shubert Organization, which owns the Broadhurst and 16 other Broadway theaters. The one-man show grossed $14.6 million over its 10-week run, the Times reports.
