For those of who are fans of Anne Hathaway, this is good news.
For those of us who aren’t fans, it’s not such good news.
Regardless of how you feel about her, Anne Hathaway has been cast to star as Judy Garland in an upcoming biopic about Judy’s life. It will be called Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland, and will obviously be a musical.
Who knew that little stunt at the beginning of the Oscars would pay off?
Harvey Weinstein’s quote from the annoucement:
We are thrilled to have the brilliantly talented Anne Hathaway portray stage and screen legend Judy Garland. I have worked with Anne on projects in the past and have known her for many years. She will be a true class act in this challenging role, Gerald Clarke’s biography is a fascinating and comprehensive look at Garland’s life and is particularly outstanding because of its exclusive details from her own writings. Her story is incredible subject matter for both theatre and film and we look forward to bringing it to audiences.
