But all of my friends who have read the novel or see the musical have said that Les Miserables is very good, and if the upcoming film turns out to be well done, then I may give Mr. Hugo another try.
|Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean|
Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) directs this historical fiction musical. Hugh Jackman (of Wolverine fame) plays the role of Jean Valjean, while Russell Crowe (Robin Hood, The Next Three Days) plays Inspector Javert. In the supporting roles are Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Samantha Barks as Eponine, Aason Tveit as Enjoiras, and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette.
Bill Nicholson wrote the screenplay for this Universal Pictures film. The film is currently in the Production stage, and filming began on March 14, 2012.
Les Miserables will be in theaters on December 14, 2012, and the film will not be available in 3D.
Do you think that Les Miserables will be Good, Bad, or Ugly? Have you ever seen the musical the film was adapted from, and did you like it?
And, just for the sake of asking, do you think I should try the Les Miserables book? :)
