Master of the Movies

News Item: “The Kings Speech” director Tom Hopper will direct movie adaptation of “Les Miserables”
I’ve always wondered why a movie has never been made of “Les Miz,” It’s been the most beloved musical for about three decades, is loved by theater geeks and non-geeks, it’s known worldwide, and has huge potential for covers of a bunch of its songs to become “Glee”-like charting hits. I suppose it would be expensive and probably need to be three hours long but regardless, there was no reason for a non-musical adaptation of the novel to make it to the screen 15 years before a musical version.
They must find a role for NPH, and maybe Jason Segel, too.
