Hathaway to star alongside Jackman and Crowe in Les Misérables

Anne Hathaway will join Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe in Tom Hooper’s upcoming musical adaptation of Les Misérables, Deadline reports.

Hathaway – who showed off her singing skills (as well as her Rachel Berry-esque theater-geek enthusiasm) when she hosted the Oscars earlier this year – will play Fantine, opposite Jackman’s Jean Valjean and Crowe’s Inspector Javert.

Les Misérables will be Hooper’s first film since picking up his Best Director Oscar for The King’s Speech.

A release date has been set for December 7, 2012.

Discuss: A promising trio of performers?
