Russell Crowe says he hopes the music from upcoming movie Les Miserables will "touch hearts".

The actor, who plays Inspector Javert in the latest version of the Victor Hugo classic, discussed the film adaptation of the hugely successful musical with his followers on Twitter and revealed details about the soundtrack.

When asked whether the accompanying score would be recorded separately or using material from the film, Crowe was seemingly confused but said he hoped fans would like the selection.

"The soundtrack of the film is the soundtrack of the film... I don't understand your question," he wrote on his Twitter profile.

"I hope there's a tune or two in that lot that touches your heart."

Crowe also revealed the film's cast would be singing live in every scene during shooting.

Unlike most films, the Les Miserables tracks would be recorded on set, he said.

"Pretty much every filmed musical ever done is mimed to a pre-recorded soundtrack ... in fact i don't know of one not," he clarified to a fan.

"On this, as has been widely reported, we will sing every take and the orchestration will be recorded afterwards, radical really."

Les Miserables boasts a star-studded cast with names such as Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried and Sacha Baron Cohen also appearing.
