'Les Miserables': Scary undertaking for Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway
"Les Misérables" is a 19th century period piece. The film adaptation was being directed by Tom Hooper, who recently won the Academy Award for "The King's Speech" but had never made a musical. And he wanted his actors to sing each of their songs live, in a method that had been tried only sparingly in film musicals. So much could go wrong.
