Anne Hathaway joining Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe in Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Anne Hathaway reportedly has joined the cast of Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables,” a lavish adaptation of the timeless stage musical that already has Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe in the leads.

Hathaway’s name has been attached to “Les Miz” as a rumor for some time now, though the casting’s being confirmed by Deadline. The “Dark Knight Rises” star, who has shared a stage with Jackman at the Oscars on multiple occasions, would play Fantine opposite Jackman’s Jean Valjean and Crowe’s Inspector Javert.

“Miserables” is Hooper’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning “The King’s Speech.” He is mounting the production for Universal, and plans to have it in theaters by December 2012.

The “Miserables” cast is loaded with actors boasting ties to superhero franchises. Hathaway’s still filming Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel. That production just shifted to New York City. Jackman, of course, has played Wolverine in multiple X-Men movies. And Crowe’s filming a part in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, “Man of Steel.”
