Remember a few years ago when Robert Pattinson and Hugh Jackman did karaoke together in Japan? So do we, and so does Hugh! In an interview with MTV the Real Steel star looks back on that night.

“I actually did karaoke with Rob. That’s random, isn’t it?” he said. “We were on our way to Japan, and he was promoting ['Twilight'] and I didn’t talk to him at all on the flight, because he’s this really tall guy with a hood over his head literally, and every time I’d go to the bathroom, I’d be like, ‘Man, that guy takes some serious sleeping pills,’ because this was him [slumps over] the whole time.”

So how did the night unfold? And are the two still going to hit the big screen together?

“When he got out, I was like, ‘Hey, man,’ and Baz Luhrmann was also on the flight because we were promoting ‘Australia.’ So we went out to this Japanese karaoke bar, and we invited Rob, and he came, and it was so much fun. Man, he’s got a voice. Really soulful.”

Hugh and Rob are both slated to star in Unbound Captives (along with Rachel Weisz), which has been in limbo for a while. Jackman also addressed the the film with MTV News:

“I’m absolutely attached, it is one of the best scripts I’ve read in a long time…as you know, Hollywood has a hard time with Westerns; it’s hard to get them made and this is a really beautiful, beautiful script. It’s written by Madeleine Stowe, who’s going to direct it as well, so I really hope that one gets made. I think that’s a really important movie.”

Stowe is currently doing well with the hit show Revenge, so that might also affect its status, but Rob and Weisz are also still interested.

Would you like to see Rob and Hugh star in a movie together? We say hell yes!
