NEW DELHI: Oscar-nominated actor Hugh Jackman has finally unveiled the first look of his upcoming film ‘The Front Runner’.

He captioned the snap, “Day 1. Principal photography. The Front Runner. #thefrontrunner @JasonReitman @BronStudios.”

In the photo, Jackman can be seen portraying politician Gary Hart, who was once considered the frontrunner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination until his bid fell apart after allegations of an affair with Donna Rice.
 
The U.S. senator from Colorado withdrew from the race amidst the controversy.
 
Following Jackman, Jason Reitman also shared a picture from The Front Runner set on his Instagram. The political drama is currently filming in Georgia.
 
The movie will adapt Matt Bai’s 2014 book, ‘All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid’, chronicling Hart’s rise and fall.
 
Bai also co-wrote the film's script with Reitman and former Hillary Clinton spokesman Jay Carson, who also produces ‘House of Cards’.
