I thought Amy Adams in Enchanted had a decent voice. If they have any sense they should give fantine to Indina Menzel. He Glee version of I dreamed a dream would have nailed any audtion.

It has already been announced that she has been offered the part but is still undecided as to play her or not!

So, this little teaser photo has appeared on twitter....seemingly out of nowhere! http://pic.twitter.com/4rVDsE0U

I should think that it is most definitely fake as 1) It's a little too early for that, 2) The photo states a 2013 opening, whereas articles are initially expecting a 2012 opening, 3) Hugh Jackman looks too much like Wolverine superimposed (if it's not just Jackman's head on another body...) and 4) The website given at the bottom, doesn't work. I checked!

Anyway, whether this photo is fake or if it is actually real - I really quite like it! Thoughts?

To be honest the only big giveaway for me is the 24601 - is it on the jacket? Or is it on his chest as it goes over both. But I wouldn't have known he looks like wolverine as I haven't actually seen it. And as for the date it could end up up being delayed for a few months so apart from the 24601 I would have thought it was real!

Ah, I got the impression that the '24601' isn't supposed to be the actual stamp across his chest, but more like of the many tag-lines they could use for the film, such as the 'Look Down' underneath it. I'm not quite sure how to actually explain it but it's separate from Jackman, printed over his picture - not part of him. I hope that makes sense! lol :)

Same picture as Wolverine.
;) It's still quite well-made.

Ah ha! Thank you for that....I had thought as much. Well made indeed though! I can just imagine now the disappointment when the real posters don't match this one ;) Though I'm pretty sure that won't happen haha

I'm not to worried that it won't be sung through like the show.

Agree with these views, as what works for the theatre won't necessarily work for movies. Look at Sunset Boulevard and the continued rumours of a movie version of that musical - having listened to the score for the first time in a few years recently, there is no way in my view that they cold film it sung-through - it is just 'too much' for a movie going audience.
