Tom Hooper's next project?

After his Best Director win at the Oscars, it will be interesting to see which film project Tom Hooper takes on next. Possibilities mentioned are a 17th century book adaptation set in the Netherlands or a 19th century adaptation set in France...

From Deadline:
"Hooper seems to be getting serious about resuscitating the Deborah Moggach novel Tulip Fever as a possible next directing vehicle. That project had been on the verge of being put in turnaround at Paramount, but the studio could be involved as a co-financier with TWC. The film's set in 17th Century Amsterdam, where a married woman and an artist hired to paint her portrait begin a passionate affair and gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together. The film has been a passion for such directors as John Madden and Peter Chelsom over the past decade, and once had Keira Knightley and Jude Law once planning to play the lovers."

"Hooper is also mulling Les Miserables"
Hmmm, wonder if Hooper has much experience with musicals because I am waiting with high expectations for the musical film planned by Cameron Mackintosh.
