Anne Hathaway has finally signed on to play Fantine in
director Tom Hooper’s movie adaptation of Les Miserables, ending months of
speculation about who will bag the coveted role.

Hugh Jackman (who’d signed on to be part of the movie
earlier) recently revealed that he was trying to persuade the actress to take
on the role of working girl Fantine in the
retelling of Victor Hugo's classic story, and it seems his efforts have paid
off.

Anne
reportedly fought off competition from Amy Adams and Rebecca Hall to land the
singing role in the movie that also stars Russell Crowe and Helena Bonham
Carter.
