The screenplay is co-written by Jenny Bicks and Oscar victor Bill Condon, and the supporting cast is rounded out by Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams. Aside from the fact that the movie is a musical, I think there's a lot of historical goodies to be found when exploring the story of P.T. Barnum-a relentless showman who, according to the movie, was the one who came up with the term "show-business". Take a look at the new trailer below. Michelle Williams, meanwhile, co-stars as Barnum's wife, Charity. Basically everything they touch turns to gold at the moment, and The Greatest Showman may prove no different. The film also notably features original songs from the Academy Award-winning lyricists of La La Land, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul. He sets out to recruit his cadre of performers, that includes Zendaya as an acrobat, Zac Efron as, we assume, the ringmaster, Rebecca Ferguson as a Swedish opera singer, and Broadway veteran Keala Settle as a very determined-looking bearded lady (Settle also sings "This Is Me", the uplifting song featured in the background).
The musical film is based on the real-life story of showman PT Barnum, played by Jackman, who in 1919 established the famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Circus, which became known as The Greatest Show on Earth.
