THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – BBC One and Masterpiece have set the cast for its forthcoming take on Les Miserables.

Set to star in the six-part drama from Andrew Davies are David Oyelowo (Selma) Dominic West (The Wire, The Affair) and Lily Collins (Okja, The Last Tycoon).

Set to begin production in February, West will take on the role of Jean Valjean, what he called “one of the greatest characters in world literature.” “His epic journey of redemption is one of the extraordinary roles an actor can take on and I can’t wait to get stuck in to bringing Andrew’s brilliant adaptation to the screen.”

Oyelowo will be taking on the part of Javert, joining Collins as Fantine. The cast also includes Adeel Akhtar (The Night Manager) and Olivia Colman (The Night Manager) as Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, Ellie Bamber (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as Cosette, Josh O’Connor (Ripper Street) as Marius and Erin Kellyman (Raised By Wolves) as Éponine.

Davies will go back to the original novel and delve deep into the layers of Hugo’s story, revelling in Jean Valjean and Javert’s cat-and-mouse relationship, against the epic backdrop of France at a time of civil unrest. Davies, Faith Penhale for Lookout Point, Bethan Jones for BBC Studios, Mona Qureshi for BBC One, Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece, West and Oyelowo exec produce. Tom Shankland directs the series, which was was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content. Production begins in February in Belgium and Northern France.

Collins is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Sloane Offer; Oyelowo is with CAA, Inphenate, Hamilton Hodell and Schreck Rose; and West is with WME.

BBC recently dropped the Weinstein Co. as a producer on the series.

VARIETY – Lily Collins will star opposite Zac Efron as the former girlfriend of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”

Voltage is handling sales at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif.

The film is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Kloepfer during the multi-year period that Bundy hid his murder spree from his live-in lover, played by Collins.

Collins recently starred in “To the Bone” and “Okja,” and was also nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress (comedy) for her starring role in “Rules Don’t Apply.” She will star as Edith Bratt in Dome Karukoski’s “Tolkien.”

Efron came aboard the Voltage Pictures project at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Bundy was executed in 1989. Shortly before his execution, he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Joe Berlinger will direct “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.” The original screenplay, written by Michael Werwie, won the Nicholl Fellowship first prize and was featured on the Black List.

Lily has very quickly distinguished herself as a major talent in a number of diverse roles in recent years,” said Berlinger. “I am really excited about taking Zac and this hugely talented actress to some dark but very human places they may not yet have explored.”

Efron was most recently seen in “Baywatch” and will be appearing in the upcoming James Franco comedy “The Disaster Artist.”

Voltage Pictures and Cota Entertainment are producing, alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett of Efron’s Ninjas Runnin Wild. Ara Keshishian, Nicolas Chartier, and Michael Costigan will be producing via Voltage and Cota. Voltage is fully financing with Jonathan Deckter as an executive producer. Production is set to begin on Jan. 10.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERLily Collins is in talks to join Nicholas Hoult in Chernin Entertainment and Fox Searchlight’s J.R.R. Tolkien biopic.

Anthony Boyle, known for playing Scorpius Malfoy in the British play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, also has signed on for the film centered on the famed author.

In Tolkien, Hoult will play the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings book series that were later adapted into two Hollywood trilogies from Peter Jackson. Dome Karukoski is directing the project.

Tolkien, written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, explores the early life of novelist J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds love, friendship, and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts. When the horrors of World War I envelope Tolkien’s life, they threaten to tear this “fellowship” apart and he questions the very meaning and purpose of his art. Instead Tolkien finds a way to use these experiences as inspiration for his famous works, among them The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Collins will play Edith Bratt, Tolkien’s great love, and eventual wife who inspired the elven princess characters in the Lord of the Rings saga.

Collins was most recently seen in Marti Noxon’s To the Bone and Joon-ho Bong’s Okja, which are both on Netflix after playing at Sundance and Cannes respectively. She is repped by CAA, LBI and Definition Entertainment.
