The Front Runner covers the real story of 1988 presidential candidate Gary Hart. The clear favorite to be the Democratic nominee for that election, Hart’s campaign was derailed when news of an extramarital affair went public and he dropped out of the race.
Now, Hugh Jackman is taking on the role of Hart in a new biopic set to come out in the midst of awards season.
Alongside a loaded cast including JK Simmons, Vera Farmiga, Bill Burr and Sara Paxton, Jackman is making his next big push for awards season following his critical success in movies like Les Miserables and The Greatest Showman.
The Front Runner releases on Tuesday, Nov. 6—Election Day.
