Anne Hathaway tipped to play iconic Fantine in Les Miserables movie
Washington, Sept 1 (ANI): Anne Hathaway has been tipped as the frontrunner to land the iconic role of Fantine in a new movie version of musical Les Miserables.
The actress, who is currently playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie, belted out 'On My Own' from the musical at the Oscars in February, and now it looks like that performance may have earned her a leading role in the movie, Contactmusic reported.
According to BroadwayWorld.com, Hathaway's pal and one-time Academy Awards duet partner Hugh Jackman will play leading man Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Hayden Panettiere, Miranda Cosgrove, Lucy Hale and Emma Watson are also being courted for roles.
The website reports Amy Adams and Rebecca Hall are both in contention for the Fantine role should Hathaway turn it down.
The movie is expected to shoot in the U.K. early next year. (ANI)
