Anne Hathaway To Keep Singing In 'Song One,' Jenny Lewis & Johnathan Rice Writing Music For The Film

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 22, 2013 at 9:24AM

Around this time last year, "Les Misérables" was still a speck in Oscar prognosticators' eyes, but perhaps Anne Hathaway already sensed her pipes would be taking her places. With the actress seen as a virtual lock to take home a statue this weekend, it looks like she wants to keep on singing. Last May, she started eyeing the movie "Song One," a picture she was slated to produce but wasn't yet locked to star in, but it looks like the wheels are in motion and some very interesting talent will helping to put this one together.

Around this time last year, "Les Misérables" was still a speck in Oscar prognosticators' eyes, but perhaps Anne Hathaway already sensed her pipes would be taking her places. With the actress seen as a virtual lock to take home a statue this weekend, it looks like she wants to keep on singing. Last May, she started eyeing the movie "Song One," a picture she was slated to produce but wasn't yet locked to star in, but it looks like the wheels are in motion and some very interesting talent will helping to put this one together.

Baz Bamigboye reports that Hathaway will star in the film, playing an archaeologist (!?) who returns home from Morocco after her brother is injured. She becomes romantically involved with his favorite musician, who in turn draws inspiration from the siblings. So yes, there will be singing, but once again, Hathaway will get just one song with Brit musician/actor Johnny Flynn doing most of the musical work as the film's co-star. However, the songs will be written by former Rilo Kiley frontwoman and solo artist Jenny Lewis alongside her boyfriend Johnathan Rice (the pair teamed up for the 2010 album I'm Having Fun Now).

It won't be Lewis' first time at the movie music rodeo, as she also soundtracked the Sundance movie "Very Good Girls" with Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen, but it seems that gig has opened a few doors. Kate Barker-FroylandDavid Frankel's assistant on "The Devil Wears Prada" – penned the script and will make her directorial debut with shooting to take place this fall. Could we see other showstopping song from Hathaway a year or so from now? Expectations will certainly be raised.
