    I guess it’s 2014.

    If Anne is going to be the new musical sensation, I can’t wait til she does the Judy Garland/Liza Minnelli biopic.

    I think the next move for musical sensation Anne Hathaway is Gypsy Rose Lee, Elpheba or Cinderella for musical roles.

    Ugh

    The role requires charm.

    Whatever her talents, that seems a stretch for her.  Not sure if she can sing, but Carey Mulligan would seem closer to the right type.

    Mulligan sang that “New York, New York” song in Shame, though I don’t know how much range the part requires.

    This.

    Now we have ‘Annie’, ‘My fair lady’, ‘Robocop’ for 2014.

    What happened to the planned movie that had Emma Thompson as a screenwriter and Carey Mulligan as Eliza Doolittle?

    I think Anne Hathaway will do just fine with this role if she gets the accent right. Wasn’t she criticized for her British accent in One Day?

    Her accent was awful in “One Day” and “Becoming Jane”. Give this role to some British girl for God’s sake.

    She was very good with accent in Becoming Jane, One Day… not so much.

    I love the MUSICAL and the movie is classic, but it’s a classic that I wouldn’t mind been revisited, especially because I’m not a big fan of Hepburn in this role.

    I just watched “My Fair Lady” a couple months ago. I guess I wouldn’t mind the updating, but I think that Carey Mulligan or Keira Knightley would have made better fits as Eliza than Anne Hathaway would. That could go so wrong so easily. What’s really going to make or break this is who gets Rex Harrison’s role. Hope they cast that well if this is happening.

    I actually see much at least from the look of Audrey in Anne, so the casting doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. I love the Original very much and I don’t need a remake, but since when did that stop Hollywood to do so anyway?
    Though it will be hard for Anne. Still people seem to dislike her since her win and now she plays a very famous Audrey role… I personally think she can pull it off, but many will love to hate her anyway.
