The Oscar-nominated Best Film "Les Misérables" — produced by Universal, Working Title and Mackintosh — has taken in $254.4 million internationally and $147 million in North America for a total ticket sales of $401.4 million.
According to the Daily Mail, Mackintosh is eyeing Tony-winning director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, An Inspector Calls) to direct and reimagine Oliver!, which features a score by Bart, a 1963 Tony Award winner for his work on the musical.
The Daily Mail also reports that Mackintosh is hoping for a Broadway revival of the work that would star Samantha Barks, who recently played Nancy in Oliver! in the West End and was seen as Eponine in "Les Misérables."
