Anne Hathaway cast as Fantine in new Les Miz movie

The movie version of Les Miserables the musical will be hitting theaters in December 2012 and with the two leads already cast--Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe as Javert--the film seems slated to move forward, with filming being scheduled for March.

It was announced today that Anne Hathaway will be joining the cast. She will play Fantine in the movie, which will be directed by Tom Hooper (Elizabeth I, The King's Speech). I'm quite interested to see how she will pull off the role, which I've always pegged to be right for an actress who's a bit older than Anne, and how she can do the singing. After all, I've only seen her sing in French with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
