This column is a huge fan of Judy Garland. So we’re giddy as a Munchkin that Anne Hathaway has been tapped to play the legend in both film and stage adaptations of Gerald Clarke’s 2000 biography, “Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland.”
The 26-year-old Hathaway sang and danced up a storm at last month’s Academy Awards, where she was nominated for Best Actress for her role in “Rachel Getting Married.”
Sources say Hathaway will do her own singing and is determined to do Garland justice. Harvey Weinstein is shepherding the project.
