JACKMAN PLANS CAROUSEL TRIP WITH OSCARS PARTNER HATHAWAY(Yeah, and the article got it wrong, it's Rodgers & Hammerstein, not Sondheim.)
HUGH JACKMAN is trying to persuade his Oscars dancing partner ANNE HATHAWAY to join him on the CAROUSEL.
The Aussie star has developed a script for the beloved Stephen Sondheim musical and he wants Hathaway to play Julie Jordan opposite his Billy Bigelow. He says, "I've been looking to do a musical film for some time and after things like Moulin Rouge!, Chicago and Hairspray, I think there's a real opportunity there."
And he's clear only Hathaway will do as his leading lady: "I've been filling up her answering machine with messages about Carousel."
Hathaway, who joined Jackman for a song and dance at the Oscars, is about to embark on her own musical journey - she will star in a new theatre and film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland's life.
I have no idea if the source is reliable or not, I just really, really want this because they have SUCH good chemistry. Yes, it's a really messed-up relationship and such, but I think they could both do so good with it. Sigh, I know, won't happen, but man if it did ...
