Oscar winning director Tom Hooper says his film version of the musical Les Miserables will have a new song and music written for it by the original composer.

Claude Michel Schonberg is collaborating with the King's Speech director on the film, that stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.

Tom Hooper told BBC Radio 4's Front Row it will be very different for him directing a film where millions of people already know the story.
