First Image of Hugh Jackman As Jean Valjean In Les Miserables

We’ve already seen a few candid shots of Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper‘s film adaptation of Cameron Mackintosh’s musical Les Misérables. Now the actor has very excitedly tweeted the first official promotional still of Valjean, which is presumably from his grubby fugitive days. I certainly wouldn’t put my trust in any mayor who looked like this.

 Jackman confirmed in the tweet that this is indeed from a scene early in the film, where Jean Valjean is a convict working in a chain gang. He also hints that we may be seeing more promotional stills in the near future.

Very excited about how the first days of filming are going!! Check out my convict look…but its changing soon.

Principle photography on Les Misérables began on March 8th, but from Jackman’s words it seems that the project is fully underway. The film will also feature Russell Crowe as the hard-edged Inspector Javert and Anne Hathaway as Fantine. It’s currently scheduledfor release on December 14th 2012. Those of you who have seen previous adaptations or read the book will know that it’s not exactly a merry Christmas tale, but as a weepy it can’t be beat and I personally can’t wait to have “One Day More” blasted at me in a surround-sound cinema.
