The Weinstein Co has announced that Anne Hathaway will star as Judy Garland in the company’s stage and film adaptations of Gerald Clarke‘s biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland. The book charts Garland’s rise to fame and her struggle with alcohol and drugs. The story was first leaked in the Cleveland Leader, where sources claimed that, “Anne dearly wants to do a musical and this could be her chance. The big attraction is that it really will be her singing, not recordings of Judy. She is determined to do it justice.” No writer or director have been announced.
