Photo Flash: Amanda Seyfried as 'Cosette' in LES MIS!
JustJared.com has revealed an early look at Amanda Seyfried on the set of the Les Miserables film in London while on a break from shooting. Seyfried, who stars as Cosette in the film, is no stranger to movie musicals, having starred in the film version of Mamma Mia! alongside Meryl Streep. The film is set for a December 7, 2012 release.
Les Miserables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen's Theatre on 3 April 2004. When LES MISÉRABLES celebrated its 21st London birthday on 8 October 2006, it became the World's Longest Running Musical, surpassing the record previously held by "Cats" in London's West End. In January 2010, the West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 10,000th performance.
The film, under the direction of Tom Hooper will also star Russell Crowe as Javert, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Samantha Barks as Eponine, and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier. Original stage stars Colm Wilkinson, Frances Ruffelle and others will appear as well.Photo Courtesy of www.justjared.com
