Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway will play Judy Garland in stage and screen adaptations of Gerald Clarke’s 2001 biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland for the Weinstein Company. According to a statement released by the Weinstein Co. today, Clarke’s book “portrays the dramatic highs and lows of the cultural icon’s life — from her tumultuous early years as a child performer to her tragic last days.” The Weinstein Co. has optioned both the stage and film rights, but there is no start date yet for either production, nor is there a director or writer.
