Hathaway In Tune With Song One
And Johnny Flynn is aboard

Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables

Singing on film has been good to Anne Hathaway: she’s up for an Oscar (and by the time you read this, she may have won it) thanks to her performance in Les Miserables. So she definitely seems keen to keep combining the two by officially signing on to star in Song One.

She’s been loosely attached to the film since last May, after she was offered the lead role of a young archaeologist who returns to America from a dig in Morocco when her brother is injured.

Helping him recover, she somehow meets his favourite musician –played in the film by Johnny Flynn – and falls in love with the rocker.

Kate Barker-Froyland wrote the script and is directing the movie, with a shoot planned for autumn in the States. According to the Mail’s Baz Bamigboye, Flynn (a singer-turned actor) will handle much of the music, but there’s a specific song already picked out for Hathaway to warble.

Though Hathaway hasn’t locked in any other solid jobs just yet, she will appear on screen for a cameo in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon’s Addiction. And there’s more related Hathaword in news that she’s officially on to voice Jewel in the Rio sequel.

Carlos Saldanha is back to direct again and the story this time finds Jewel and partner Blue (Jesse Eisenberg) raising their three kids (including Looper find Pierce Gagnon) in Rio. But when she decides the children should learn to be birds, they venture into the Amazon, leading Blue to worry he could lose his family to the call of the wild.

Jermaine Clement, will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro and Jamie Foxx are all returning along with new recruits Gagnon, Andy Garcia, Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Rita Moreno, Amandla Stenberg, Rachel Crow and Natalie Morales. The Rio sequel is set to hit screens on April 4 next year.
