Anne Hathaway Lives to Sing Again in 'Song One'

Anne Hathaway dreamed a dream ... of singing again! And it looks like that dream is coming true.

The "Les Miserables" star is letting her impressive set of pipes take her places as she's signed on to star (and sing in) "Song One," according to Daily Mail.

"Song One" will feature Hathaway as an archaeologist (why not?) who abandons her dig in Morocco and returns to the States after her brother is injured. Once home, she falls for her brother's favorite musician, to be played by singer-songwriter Johnny Flynn, who (in real life) fronts the folk band Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit.

Johnathan Rice and Jenny Lewis are writing songs for Flynn to perform, with one track being reserved for Hathaway. Lewis recently provided the soundtrack to "Very Good Girls," starring Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival last month.

Hathaway originally showed interest in "Song One" last May, circling it as a potential producing project but not committing to appearing in front of the camera as well. The film is being written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland, who was the assistant to director David Frankel on "The Devil Wears Prada," starring Hathaway and Meryl Streep.

Anne Hathaway, who has something of a gap in her schedule with Steven Spielberg's "Robopocalypse" being put on hold, is also attached to a new screen version of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." She's also almost definitely going to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
