Anne Hathaway to Pull Double Judy Garland Dut

A star has already been born, but apparently Anne Hathaway’s Oscar-nominated role as a tempestuous recovering addict in Rachel Getting Married was just a warm-up.

The 26-year-old It girl is attached to star in upcoming film and theater productions of Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland.

The dual projects are based on the 2000 Gerald Clarke-penned biography about Judy Garland, the wee (4 feet, 11 inches, per IMDb) actress with the huge voice who went from child star to MGM golden girl to walking tragedy before her death at 47 of an accidental barbiturate overdose in 1969.“We are thrilled to have the brilliantly talented Anne Hathaway portray stage and screen legend Judy Garland. I have worked with Anne on projects in the past and have known her for many years. She will be a true class act in this challenging role,” said Harvey Weinstein, whose Weinstein Co. optioned the rights to Clarke’s book.

No word on whether Hathaway—a classically trained soprano—will lip-sync, as Marion Cotillard did with Edith Piaf’s iconic vocals in her Oscar-winning turn in La Vie en Rose, or if she’ll provide her own take on Garland’s signature sound.

Judy Davis, for one, went with the recordings in her award-reaping turn as Garland in the ABC movie Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows, based on the memoir by Liza’s half-sister, Lorna Luft.
