Anne Hathaway will probably pick up her first Oscar on Sunday for her performance in Les Miserables. Hathaway has entertained the possibility of continuing her singing performances in a stage or screen remake of My Fair Lady, and once upon a time she was attached to star in a Judy Garland biopic (we don’t know if she’s still on board). No matter what happens with those projects, it looks like Hathaway’s next on-screen musical performance will be in Song One. As we reported back in May 2012, Hathaway will produce and star, and according to Daily Mail, she’s having a song specifically written for her as well. In the film, Hathaway plays an archeologist who falls for a rock star (British singer-actor Johnny Flynn) after she returns from a dig when her brother is injured in the U.S. Kate Barker-Froyland will write and direct, and shooting is scheduled to begin this fall. I hope Hathaway’s song is about archeology. There is a noticeable dearth of songs about archeology.
Hathaway is also attached to star in a modern telling of The Taming of the Shrew. She was also on board Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Robopocalypse, but that film has gone “back to the drawing board to see what is possible.”
