Anne is set to play Fantine, while Russell will play Inspector Javert and Hugh as Jean Valjean.

While hosting the Oscars this past year, Anne sang the song “On My Own” from Les Misérables in a spoof about Hugh bailing on returning the Oscar duet favor. The pair did actually sing together with Hugh hosted the show back in 2009.

Do you think they’ll be good stars for this new film?
