Jackman Locked, Crowe Keen On “Les Mis”?

Hugh Jackman says he’s firmly locked into playing Jean Valjean the film version of hit musical “Les Miserables” which he’ll shoot once he wraps “The Wolverine” reports Baz Bamigboye.

While the musical is all singing, Jackman confirms that dialogue has been introduced in the script, and calls director Tom Hooper’s vision for the project “very exciting”.

More surprising though is the same piece says Russell Crowe is apparently keen to play the determined Inspector Javert, the antagonist of the piece. However Paul Bettany remains the front runner.

Shooting will kick off early next year.
