Last I read, they were hoping to do Les Miz at the beginning of the year. Hugh hasn't done any movie since the beginning of the year because he's been preparing for this one, enough already! This thing better get going and on time and he BETTER do Les Miz! There's no one else more perfect for Jean Valjean! Maybe Hugh will say something in Toronto during interviews/talking to fans at his one-man show... Please just confirm it....
Ok, back to Wolvie....
I read that report too. I hope it's true, because it did sound like they're trying to make it work so he can do the movie. Or maybe that's just how I read it, I have no clue how these things work...

Would you like to take it out and ask it?
’Should we honor our treaty, King Louis’ head?’
‘Uh, do whatever you want, I’m super-dead!’"
