Hathaway Finds Inner Dorothy

The Weinstein Company has casted Anne Hathaway to portray Judy Garland both on screen and on stage. Variety reports both productions will be based of the Gerald Clarke-penned biography "Get Happy." The book was published back in 2001 and at this time it is un-clear which version will come first.

Ben Famiglietti, who is Vice President of production and development over at TWC said, "You get an enhanced perspective of Judy Garland through this book and we feel Anne can really put her own stamp on that." Hathaway seems like a perfect choice for the once starlett of film and stage. They have a near striking resemblence and Hathaway should really be able to show off her all-around talents with this double-dipping project. Annne Hathaway can be seen on stage this summer doing Shakespeare in the Park with a production of "Twelfth Night."

What say you? Does a Judy Garland film or stage production intrigue you? As long as Hathaway is involved, count me in! Strikeback...
