Wouldn't It Be Loverly? Anne Hathaway Thinks Starring in My Fair Lady Would Be a 'Treat'

Wouldn't It Be Loverly? Anne Hathaway Thinks Starring in My Fair Lady Would Be a 'Treat'

Could Anne Hathaway play Eliza Doolittle in a stage or screen version of 'My Fair Lady'?

Want to see Anne Hathaway play Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady? Well, so does she. The Daily Mail reports that Hathaway has expressed interest in tackling the title role in a reboot of My Fair Lady—though the question remains, on stage or on screen?

“I haven’t heard for a while what’s happening with My Fair Lady, and I don’t know whether I would do it on stage, or screen, but either would be a treat,” Hathaway told the newspaper.

If Hathaway chose the stage route, she could very well join up with Dominic West in the currently running revival at London’s Sheffield Theatre, which is hoping to transfer to the West End soon. Should she tackle Broadway, she may dance all night with Colin Firth, who—along with Hathaway—topped producer Clive Davis’ list of dream candidates for Henry and Eliza in his forthcoming production.

And then, of course, there is Hathaway's Les Miz producer Cameron Mackintosh, who is in the planning stages of a new My Fair Lady movie (last rumored to be starring Carey Mulligan). Mackintosh is also reportedly looking to mount his own revival of My Fair Lady in the West End within the next few years.

Though the dream of a Hathaway-Higgins merger may still be far off, viewers hoping to hear the Les Miz star show off her singing chops again will get to do just that when she stars in a new film called Song One. The movie begins shooting later this year, and will star Hathaway as an archaeologist who falls for a rocker (played by British musician Johnny Flynn).

You've got so many options, Anne—take your pick!
