Victor Hugo's Jean Valjean (Liam Neeson) steals bread for his family and becomes a fugitive, hounded for life by obsessed policeman Javert (Geoffrey Rush).
Hugh Jackman appeared at Comic-Con to help promote October's robot boxing drama Real Steel, but also spoke about some of the upcoming projects he has lined up.
The first is a collaboration with Academy Award‐winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) in a musical adaptation of Les Miserables. Jackman will play ex-convict Jean Valjean, the role Liam Neeson played in 1998 non-musical version, and revealed (via Screenrant) that shooting will begin in February.
Of course, prior to Les Miserables is the The Wolverine, the stand-alone, non-sequel sequel to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Jackman will be shooting that first and even revealed the villain of the movie.
