A pair of Hollywood’s hottest hunks, Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson and X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s Hugh Jackman, will join forces in Unbound Captives, a drama set in the 1860′s that marks actress Madeline Stowe’s debut as a director.
“Robert said yes last fall, before everything broke with Twilight,” said Stowe. “Hugh said yes a couple of weeks ago.”
The film also features Rachel Weisz, who Stowe said she felt strongly about casting the actress in the film.
“I saw three actresses,” Stowe told MTV, “and knew after meeting with Rachel that she was the person I wanted to hand this role to.”
The film is slated to begin shooting later this year.
