It seems like the end of summer brings nothing but news of remakes and casting rumors. Most of them seem lackluster, but the rumor of Anne Hathaway in a major role in the upcoming Les Miserables adaptation will pique a lot of interest. If cast, she would join Hugh Jackman, who, according to The Playlist, is insisting that Hathaway be cast.
Right now it is all speculative, but the Academy Award nominated actress has been known to choose a wide variety of films, but has yet to try her talents in a musical. Other casting rumors include Amy Adams for the same role as Hathaway. Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany have been linked to a role as well.
