Re: "King's Speech" director to take on "Les Miserables"

At heart, when it comes to adaptations, I'm a purist. Movies of 3 + hours have been successful, as long as they're done well. Or, release a trimmed down version of ~3 (several action movies are coming in at 2.5 hours or a little more) to theaters and have the Bluray/DVD have the complete musical. All though I'm a purist, I will say I can do without Gavroche.

BTW, anyone seen the new traveling version, I've heard that it is a bit different from the original (different staging). I don't know if it's shorter, but I'll be seeing it in January.
It keeps Carol Anne very close to it and away from the spectral light. It lies to her. It says things only a child can understand. It has been using her to restrain the others.
To her it simply is another child. To us it is the beast.
Now let's go get your daughter.
