Arriving in theaters next month, LES MISERABLES is the big-screen adaptation of the long-running Broadway musical inspired by the classic novel by VICTOR HUGO. Hugely popular, the show has run (in one incarnation or another) for over 30 years and won countless awards.
Already the subject of considerable “Oscar buzz”, the film is directed by TOM HOOPER from a script by WILLIAM NICHOLSON and features an impressive ensemble cast that includes HUGH JACKMAN, ANNE HATHAWAY, RUSSELL CROWE, SACHA BARON COHEN, HELENA BONHAM CARTER and AMANDA SEYFRIED. Almost all involved have musical stage experience and, judging from the trailers, it shows. Despite being a Broadway vet and Tony Award-winner, HUGH JACKMAN told us earlier this year that he not only had to audition for his role in the film but that he actually insisted on it.
