Anne Hathaway joins Les Miserables cast

Anne Hathaway, who performed an unforgettable song and dance routine with Hugh Jackman at the 81st Academy Awards, is joining Jackman again for another musical venture. She’s joined the cast of the movie version of the Broadway musical Les Misérables, playing Fantine, a single woman who has a daughter and turns to prostitution to support her. Jackman will play the lead role of Jean Valjean, a man who is imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, while Russell Crowe has been cast as Valjean’s nemesis, Inspector Javert. Helena Bonham Carter is also in the cast, playing Madame Thenardier. Les Misérables is expected to begin filming early next year and will be released to theaters on December 7, 2012.
