What?! The cast of the Les Miserables film are singing LIVE on set???? But no one will be able to hear Anne Hathaway's sweet serenade or Hugh Jackman's crooning if their voice boxes give out!
While we ADORE the authenticity of singing live for every take, those are some CRAZY intense vocals being done over and over and over…
One source says about the epic filming process:
Every big musical number is being recorded as live, which is a huge challenge to the cast. It has to be note-perfect or Tom [Hooper] won’t use it – he’s a real perfectionist. Some of the cast have been belting out songs a number of times in a row and it’s taken its toll on their voices.”
BUT, it seems that the production crew are handing out specialty ginger and lemon concotions to the star-singers, and throat lozenges are being sucked on the regular.
This movie will be INSANE and is surely going to DEVOUR any lurking tigers in the night!
