I just heard that there is a new film of Les Miserables in production, to be released this
summer Christmas. It’s going to star Russel Crowe, Hugh Jackman, and Anne Hathaway. And it’s going to be a production of the musical.
I am squeeing so hard the dog is hiding right now. I love the musical. I got to see the final performance of the original London cast when I was in high school. I can’t wait for this to hit the theaters.
My only beef is that Crowe is playing Javert and Jackman is playing Valjean. When I first heard about them both being in it, I kind of assumed that the casting would be the opposite of that. Jackman strikes me as more of a Javert and Crowe just has that half-badass, half-puppy dog look calls Valjean to mind.
Anyway – there’s at least one movie I’m looking forward to this Christmas season.
