Anne Hathaway stepping to the mic again for 'Song One'
Well, technically, the mic in "Les Miserables" was invisible, but Anne Hathaway's musical performance is what put Oscars voters on their feet. The actress may be taking on another singing role with the film "Song One," co-starring with British folkie Johnny Flynn.
Baz Bamigboye at the U.K.'s Daily Mail is reporting that Hathaway has signed on to the project, playing "an archaeologist who falls for a rock star... They meet when Hathaway’s character returns to the US from a dig in Morocco, when her brother is injured. Flynn plays the brother’s favourite musician."
Hathaway is slated to sing only one song, but a tune that's penned by a masterful team: Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice, aka Jenny and Johnny. Lewis just scored her film, "Very Good Girls," which premiered at Sundance this year.
The film’s is written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland, will shoot in the U.S. this fall and Hathaway’s husband Adam Shulman will be among producers on the project, according to Bamigboye.
