Some enterprising individual has put together a Tumblr just collecting the various and sundry coming out of the BBC adaptation.

(Speaking as someone with a lot of signed NDAs under her belt: wow, there's a lot of leaking going on.)

We still only have confirmed Enjolras, Courfeyrac, Grantaire (and Marius) of the Amis on IMDB, and with filming of the barricade underway it seems we won't get more Amis than that. Which sucks. A little less excited about the series now, to be honest.

Just so you know, the way IMDB works is that it's open-source. Typically speaking, when something is in production, people add *themselves* to a project. (Or agents might add their clients.) Sometimes someone from publicity will add a big name star to help hype up the film, but no one really pays any attention to the IMDB page until after the project is completed. Then someone from publicity goes through with the official cast list and the official credit (crew) list and adds and confirms everything in one go. The fact that there aren't any other Amis listed by name yet really doesn't mean anything at all.

Also, if I wanted to I could go in and make it say that I played Bahorel. It's like Wikipedia that way; anyone can edit until the final credit list comes out and a producer or someone associated with the production marks the credit list as "complete."

All the students may not feature, even the 1934 adaptaion didn't have them all.

I am majorly concerned/burningly curious about the alleged sex scenes in the series. It's probably just going to be random background characters, but still...

Is it supposed to be sexy?

I'm hoping for a literal interpretation of the angels watching Marius and Cosette get it on at the end.

Andrew Davies is a big believer in sexing everything up. He is also very talented and I am positive this will be good.

Couple clips from the upcoming series here. Nothing to write home about, but from a cinematic standpoint it all looks pretty good.

(I.e. better than that horrible movie with unnecessary dutch angles and extreme close-ups.)
