First Full Set of Official 'Les Misérables' Photos with Hugh Jackman
Les Mis is coming! Universal has started teasing more photos for their upcoming epic musical adaptation, directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) starring Hugh Jackman as French prisoner Jean Valjean. USA Today unveiled a new gallery of images, likely leading up to the debut of a teaser trailer sometime soon. We've only seen one shot of Jackman before, but now we get better looks at Anne Hathaway as Fantine, as well as Russell Crowe as Javert, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette and Samantha Barks as Éponine. "We have found actors who naturally express themselves through music," states producer Cameron Mackintosh.
Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) is directing Les Miserables, an adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo's classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) seeks his redemption. Alain Boublil adapted his own work with Claude-Michel Schonberg, who also wrote the stage musical, Herbert Kretzmer and William Nicholson. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne and will hit theaters everywhere starting on December 14th later this winter. Looking good?
