Latest on Les Miserables Movie

Oscar-winning director of the King's Speech Tom Hooper (pictured) is also directing the film of Les Miserables starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne which begins shooting in London next March with an initial release date set for December 2012.

King's Speech stars Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter are also said to be attached to the project.

Hooper said "I did test 3D and I was very tempted - I think it is a very interesting new form. But I slightly worry with 3D that some people will physically struggle with it. If you have a certain type of eyesight it can be more demanding than watching a normal movie. With a two-and-a-half hour film I didn't want to make something that anyone might think ‘That's not for me, because I don't like the medium’. I wanted to make a film that would touch everyone. I believe the story is so strong that 3D is not essential. So I can definitely announce it's good old-fashioned 2D.”

Hooper added that the casting of Eponine and Cosette would be announced soon adding "I've never done a film where big star actors are as obsessed with being in it as this!"
