Wolverine Might Lend His Claw To ‘Les Miserables’?!?!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Director Tom Hooper’s next project will be the adaptation of the stage play ‘Les Miserables’ and he is courting Hugh Jackman to be the star.  Also, actor Paul Bettany (‘Priest’, ‘Legion’) is wanting the role of Javert for which he has already read and sang the songs for execs and casting directors.  The goal so far is to start production by the end of the year somewhere in Europe.

Now Tom Hooper directed ‘The King’s Speech’ and the HBO ‘John Adams’ series.  So we know he has talent.  It will be interesting if he gets these two actors for this movie.  I like Hugh Jackman a lot.  He really is a song and dance man as we have come to know from his various hosting gigs for awards show.  I thin he will be an excellent edition to his revamp of the Broadway play.  Keep your eye out for this one and see if things fall into place.

Your thoughts?
