The King's Speech Director To Do Les Miz?

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesFilm Flickers

kings speech director may take on les miz

Back in October, the musical version of Les Misérables celebrated its quarter century birthday.

Now, it looks like a new film version of the Victor Hugo novel/Broadway musical is in the works, and The King's Speech director Tom Hooper may take on the project.

Unlike 1998's non-musical Les Miserables film which starred Liam Neeson, this version is being "conceived as a big-budget musical."

We think this is a great idea! We fully support exposing a new generation to Les Miz…especially if Tom Hooper works on the project. He's definitely got the directing skillz to pull it off.

Are U excited for more Les Miz? Do U think the King's Speech director is right for the project?

    I've seen Les Mis on broadway about 13 times. LOOOOVE IT! I've been waiting for this for years! I always thought Rob Marshall would do it justice. CAN'T WAIT!!

    Oh man Les Mis is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Broadway play. Have been obsessed with it since I was a little girl. I knew all the words (even though I didn't understand 78% of what was going on) I can't wait for this, but hopefully they pick the perfect people for the movie, otherwise it won't be good

    Great idea, but your average movie goer isnt going to pay to see it. Sadly.
