The story of this film is inspired by the hit Broadway production that has dazzled audiences for nearly three decades. The original story was written by French author Victor Hugo on the social injustice of early nineteenth century France and the city of Paris during this time period. Another historical note of the film is the depiction of the 1832 June Rebellion when barricades began to spring up as fighting ensued. Also, this film has the original score written by Claude Michel Schonberg, who had written the score for the original theatrical productions for both the United Kingdom and the United States.
Universal Films has already finished filming in the city of Winchester, England with the advent of digital matte technology to aide in the depiction of 19th Century Paris. Also Universal has done filming in the historical areas of Paris, France to create a realistic feel to the film plot. A few of Hollywood's celebrities have already been cast into this film, creating a powerhouse of talent to create an original theater production quality worthy of a Tony Award.
Knowing the popularity of the Musical, critics are predicting rave reviews for the film adaptation. The film was screened in New York City and received a standing ovation after the conclusion. However, the release dates for both the United States and the United Kingdom will differ, due to circumstances of circulation across the Atlantic. The release date for the United States will be sometime in the month of December 2012. The release date for the United Kingdom will be scheduled for the month of January 2013 in theaters across the country.
