Russell Crowe to star in 'Les Miserables'
'Gladiator' star Russell Crowe will join Hugh Jackman and Helena Bonham Carter in 'Les Miserables'.

Los Angeles: 'Gladiator' star Russell Crowe will join Hugh Jackman and Helena Bonham Carter in 'Les Miserables'.

The 47-yeaar-old ctor will be seen in this big-screen musical adaptation being directed by Tom Hooper, the Hollywood Reporter said.

Crowe will play Javert, the uncompassionate police inspector who will stop at nothing to recapture Jean Valjean (Jackman), the man who steals bread to feed his sister and spends the ensuing years in prison (or trying to escape it) while also becoming the guardian of a young woman named Cosette.

The story is set against the backdrop of a 19th century French rebellion. Carter will play Madame Thenardier.

William Nicholson wrote the script and the movie will use Claude-Michel Schoenberg's score from this musical, which is based on Victor Hugo's french novel.

Crowe is scheduled to shoot 'Broken City' with Mark Wahlberg later this year. The film is slated to release on December 7 next year.
