Hugh Jackman in Talks for "Les Miserables" Movie

Posted: June 16th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hugh Jackman in Talks for "Les Miserables" MovieSubmit Comment
Back in March, we learned that "The King's Speech" director tom Hooper will next direct "Les Miserables," a musical adaptation of the Broadway hit.

Variety is now reporting that Hugh Jackman is in talks to star in the film as Jean Valjean, a recently released prisoner struggling to survive during the French revolution. The story is based on a 1862 novel by Victor Hugo.

Jackman was planning to star in the sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," but since things have been delayed after losing director Darren Aronofsky, he has time to star in another project.

I hear it is a really good musical, just hope the film lives up to it.

why don't they just say 'hugh jackman in talks for a remake of les miserables'...there's a film adaptation of this already, made in 1998...anybody who makes another film out of this again makes it look like every single high school that HAS to do THIS play THIS year...

French Revolution, Victor Hugo, garbage. No thanks. And musicals are for homos. No offense. Real men watch Italian operas, if they must, not sh*t like Cats or Tres Terribles or whatever.

SMH...Cats, Mink I tried to forget about that atrocious sing-a-long...
