Hugh Jackman has walked away from the production company he co-founded so he can concentrate on his acting career.
The X-Men star set up Seed Productions in 2006 with his former assistant John Palermo, and the firm backed films including Jackman's superhero movies X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Jackman will continue working with the company on ongoing projects including the upcoming Wolverine sequel, which is set to begin filming in Japan early next year (11), and a remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.
But Palermo will form a new company without Jackman for future projects, according to Deadline.com.
