I’ve confirmed that Amanda Seyfried is in final negotiations to play Cosette in Les Miserables, joining Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Inspector Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine) and Eddie Redmayne (Marius) in the Tom Hooper-directed musical for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films. William Nicholson, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg wrote the script and Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing with Cameron Mackintosh and Debra Hayward. The film will be released December 7, 2012. Innovative Artists-repped Seyfried’s last musical for Universal was Mamma Mia!
