Tom Hooper may move from “Speech” to “Miserables”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Picking your next project after an Oscar win has to be difficult. For “King’s Speech” director Tom Hooper, it might be downright “Miserables.”

The Oscar-winning filmmaker reportedly is in negotiations to helm a big-screen adaptation of the long-running musical “Les Miserables,” Deadline reports.

Hooper would helm the film for Universal Pictures. Cameron Mackintosh would produced the production from his stage take of the timeless musical. This, of course, wouldn’t be the first time “Miserables” would be adapted for the screen. But it would be interesting to see how Hooper approaches the material, if, in fact, he winds up signing on the dotted line. Right now, Hooper’s team “stopped short of saying it would definitively be his next film,” but Deadline seems to think it’s a done deal.

What do you think? Do you want to see Hooper try “Miserables,” or attempt something fresh and new?
