"My Fair Lady" For Anne Hathaway

Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway has been cast as 'Eliza Doolittle' in a new musical film adaptation of "My Fair Lady", from producer Cameron Mackintosh of "Les Misérables" fame.

The original Oscar-winning 1964 "My Fair Lady" film adaptation of the Lerner and Loewe stage musical, directed by George Cukor, was based on the 1938 film adaptation of the stage play "Pygmalion" by author George Bernard Shaw.

Starring Audrey Hepburn, the Cukor film depicted misogynistic and arrogant phonetics professor 'Henry Higgins' (Rex Harrison) as he wagers he can take 'low-class' flower girl 'Eliza Doolittle' (Hepburn) and turn her Cockney accent into a proper English one, thereby making her 'presentable' in high society.
