The highly anticipated movie version of LES MIS is currently in production, and last night, February 12, several of the stars of the film were in attendance at the 2012 BAFTA Awards. Check out a photo of on-screen rivals Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) and Javert (Russell Crowe), as featured on Jackman's Facebook page, below.
The film is set to premiere in theaters on December 7, 2012.
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.
All stars will reportedly sing live on film; Tom Hooper is at the helm and the movie also features Russell Crowe as Javert, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier.
