Last month, we were excited to learn that The King's Speech director Tom Hooper is up for the new Les Miz musical movie.
We thought it was a great idea, and now we're pumped to hear that negotiations have begun for him to sign on to direct the new film version of the Victor Hugo novel/Broadway musical.
If done right, this could DEFINITELY be an Oscar contender!
We'll look forward to hearing confirmation on Tom as the Les Miz director soon.
Do U think A Tom Hooper-directed Les Miserables could be a Best Picture contender?
