LES MISERABLES - Photos from the Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe Musical
Here's a series of photos from Les Miserables giving us a look at several of the actors in character from the Tom Hooper directed film. Some of the cast you see here include Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, and Samantha Barks.
Everyone looks great in their roles, it will be interesting to see how well they do when it comes to singing. I'm a fan of the story and musical, and I hope this movie does it justice.
The film is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, and tells the powerful story of "broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever."
William Nicholson wrote the script of the movie. The musical's original producer, Cameron Mackintosh, is producing the film, and the original score by composer Claude-Michel Schoenberg will be used. Apparently he's even written some new songs for it.
The film is set to hit theaters on December 14th, 2012. Check out the images below, and let us know if this is a film you're looking forward to.
