Anne Hathaway is a charming presence on screen, but she wouldn’t have been my first choice to play Judy Garland in a biopic about her life. But that is precisely what is happening. The Weinstiens have optioned the Judy Garland story for a feature film and stage production and Hathaway is attached to both.
Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway is attached to star as iconic performer Judy Garland in the film and stage adaptations of Gerald Clarke’s biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland, for which The Weinstein Company (TWC) has optioned the film and stage rights. The announcement was made today by Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of TWC.
Get Happy, based on hundreds of interviews plus Garland’s own unfinished and unpublished autobiography, portrays the dramatic highs and lows of the cultural icon’s life– from her tumultuous early years as a child performer to her tragic last days.
I imagine her stage run will be limited, as Hathaway always seems to have some sort of projects on the go, but it is a great idea to support the film and give fans of the stage production the same experience.
Hathaway has a very pretty singing voice, and would be a nice match for Garland’s dulcet tones. But visually I don’t match the two up. We will have to wait and see how this works out.
