Anne Hathaway discussed her oft-delayed Judy Garland film earlier today, citing the project’s “sensitive” nature as the primary reason for its slow development.  According to BBC News (via an interview the actress did with BBC Radio Four’s Front Row), Hathaway said of the film:

“It’s a very sensitive project and there have been so many stories told about her life that we’re really trying to get it right.  So we’ve taking our time with it. I know it seems like it’s sort of an endless process but it’s very, very slow incremental steps.  I had a meeting about it a couple of weeks ago and we’re all very motivated.”

For more on the project and to find out what the Oscar-nominated actress had to say about singing in the film, hit the jump.  Hathaway can currently be seen alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Love and Other Drugs (a role for which she has been nominated for a Golden Globe).  She will also co-host the 83rd Annual Academy Awards with James Franco.

Judy Garland, every once in a while, could deliver a great performance. It seems now she’s better known for her personal problems, The Wizard of Oz, and her adoring fanbase. But in A Star is Born she gives one of her best performances in what appears to be a mirror of her own life. Garland plays Esther Blodgett, a singer with great pipes discovered by Norman Maine (James Mason). The two fall in love, but he’s a boozy mess and as she finally achieves stardom he recedes from the spotlight. My review of the gorgeous Blu-ray of A Star is Born follows after the jump.
