Hugh Jackman and producing partner fold their Seed label

HollywoodNews.com: Hugh Jackman wants to drop the title of producer to focus solely on acting.

Actor originally partnered with John Palermo four years ago to form Seed Productions on the Fox lot where they shepherded such hit films as “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Deception” and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” which have collectively made $850 million worldwide at the box office.

Palermo will continue as a producer at Fox with his own separate label which will cease in 2012.

Jackman plans to keep his name on a number of Seed films at Fox down the road: the “Wolverine” sequel, “Avon Man,” a “Barnum” biography and “Carousel,” based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

Palermo has a number of features in development including but not limited to a feature adaptation of Catherine Fisher’s “Incarceron,” a Ryan Gosling project “Drive” as well as a remake of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.”

Originally, Jackman was set to star in “Drive” which is being independently financed by Oddlot Entertainment. “Drive” is based on a novel by James Sallis about a Hollywood stunt driver who learns he has a bounty on his head. Cameras roll in September with Nicholas Winding Refn directing.

“Avon Man” is another project that Jackman stepped away from.

Jackman will be appearing in Wayne Wang’s “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” and the comedy “Butter” alongside Ashley Greene.
