Do you hear the people sing? Specifically, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman, who are all confirmed to star in the big-screen musical “Les Miserables,” directed by Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”). Hathaway just signed to play Fantine, who, if I’m remembering the musical’s labyrinthine plot correctly, warbles “I Dreamed a Dream” before (spoiler alert!) promptly dying. Crowe will play Inspector Javert; Jackman will play Jean Valjean. “Les Miserables,” which will begin production soon, already has an Oscar-friendly release date: December 7, 2012.
