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

New info about the new song that's written for the film version: It's called "Suddenly" and will be sung by Valjean.

http://www.playbill.com/news/article...sh-Reveals-All

Since they say that it will come after Cosette is taken from the Thenardiers, I'd guess it will be about her growing up and a way to jump forward in time.

Not that I actually object to more Valjean goodness, but... he's already got so many great songs. Maybe something of a duet with Cossette?

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

Based on what that article says, I think I know exactly the sequence from the novel that the song is going to portray, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes across and fits into the fabric of the rest of the musical. I'm also hoping that at some point they'll incorporate the new song and its accompanying scene(s) into the stage production, because, if I'm right about the scene sequence that the song will most likely cover, it'd be neat to see done on stage.

Looks like Sacha Baron Cohen will be deep in character (LINK) if the Sun is to be believed, and will not change or wash his costume while playing Monsieur Thénardier.

First photo of Jackman as Valjean (looks like it's from the beginning when he is in prison or was just released):

And now the first look at Crowe's Javert:

It seems like we are slowly getting shots from all the characters.

Awesome - didn't know that Colm Wilkinson will be playing a role in this. He's THE definitive Valjean to me, I'm glad he's got a part.

Hathaway and Jackman filming and singing at the barricades:

I'm not really sure where this fits in the film, maybe:

I think you're right about the placement the song is the finale.

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

Lots of new photos, the only ones that are missing are the Thenardiers, otherwise I think we've now seen all the main characters:

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

The first trailer, with Anne Hathaway's version of "I Dreamed A Dream" (they seem to be playing down the instrumentals a bit).

The visual style looks right.
