EW.com reports today that the Broadway-bound musical Houdini, starring Hugh Jackman, has a new writer at the helm in Aaron Sorkin.  According to EW: "an impressive creative team has quietly assembled around the project, including playwright Aaron Sorkin, composer Danny Elfman, lyricist Glenn Slater, and director Jack O'Brien - and despite repeated delays, Elfman says work on Houdini is now well underway."

Elfman, who has worked on the music for the show for two years now, reveals: "Right now Aaron Sorkin is writing...He's writing away, and we all have high hopes that Aaron's going to come through and do some good stuff.'"
