The Les Mis movie, starring Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, will feature a new song written by original composer Claude Michel-Schonberg for Jackman's character, Cameron Macintosh has confirmed.
The song, entitled "Suddenly" will be written by the entire original songwriting team from the original London production.
"It was something that Alain and Claude-Michel came up with, after a passage in the book, which beautifully explains what happens when [Valjean] takes Cosette from the inn and looks after her. Herbie's written a lovely lyric to it, and we're all delighted how it seems to fit into the film version," Macintosh said
In addition, the film is set to have live singing as opposed to dubbed, recorded tracks. I am extremely excited for that.
I think the potential for a new song is great and I personally am so excited to hear it!!
