This is the first film he has been in negotiations on since winning the Oscar for Best Director for The King's Speech.  According to the site, people in Hooper's camp haven't confirmed it will definitely be his next film.

Les Miserables is known for its amazing music, including the very popular song I Dreamed a Dream, re-sung many times in popular culture.  Perhaps most famously by Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent. It was the song that made her famous.
