The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye interviewed Hugh Jackman, and Hugh sets some of the record straight. Emma Watson is not involved with the film but it appears Anne Hathaway and possibly Helena Bonham Carter are.

How Hugh made a real fist of it (scroll down more than one-third of the page, almost halfway down)

[Director Tom] Hooper is keeping his options open about whether the cast will pre-record songs.

‘There’s the option of recording live or lip-synching and I’ve been down the lip-synching route with the video of Oklahoma!’ Hugh told me.

‘I think singing live might work better with this, but Tom won’t make a decision just yet.’

Hooper is assembling his own version of the screenplay and overseeing the casting of other key roles, having already decided on Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and possibly Helena Bonham Carter.

Reports about Emma Watson playing Cosette are incorrect. She won’t be doing the film.

Hooper’s also looking for 17 and 18-year-olds to play the student revolutionaries — not actors in their 20s.

Hugh hopes to work with Hooper for four or five days next month in London to refine the Jean Valjean character he’ll play in Les Mis.
