BBC is bringing us an all-new adaptation of Les Misérables. The new, epic six-part adaptation written by Andrew Davies. The adaptation stars
Dominic West as Jean Valjean, David Oyelowo as Javert, Lily Collins as Fantine, Adeel Akhtar as Thenardier, Olivia Colman as Madame Thenardier, Ellie Bamber as Cosette, and Josh O’Connor as Marius.
Andrew Davies, who earlier this week was confirmed as the scribe taking on the challenge of adapting unfinished Jane Austen novel “Sanditon,” has brought “Les Miserables” to the screen. The series will delve deep into the layers of Hugo’s story, exploring Jean Valjean and Javert’s cat-and-mouse relationship, against the backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest.
