Anne Hathaway is apparently considering playing Fantine in the Les Miserables film.

The One Day star is said to be "set to take on the role" in Tom Hooper's forthcoming big-screen adaptation of the famous musical, following Hugh Jackman's recommendation after she belted out On My Own at this year's Oscar ceremony, reported Broadway World.

The actress, who is currently filming Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises in which she plays Catwoman, is in the running alongside Amy Adams and Rebecca Hall.

Anne's fellow Oscars host Hugh, is tipped to portray reformed prisoner Jean Valjean, while Russell Crowe is up for the part of Inspector Javert.

Geoffrey Rush could be cast as drunken pub owner Thenardier, with Helena Bonham Carter as his screen wife Madame Thenardier, and Emma Watson, Hayden Panettiere, Miranda Cosgrove and Lucy Hale are reportedly vying for the roles of Eponine and Cosette, according to Itsonthegrid.com.

Les Miserables is expected to start filming in the UK in February 2012.

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
