Anne Hathaway might be trading in her Catwoman outfit for a corset. The actress has become the frontrunner to land the iconic role of Fantine in a new movie version of musical Les Miserables.

The actress, who is currently playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie, belted out "On My Own" from the musical at the Oscars in February and now it looks like that performance may have earned her a leading role in the movie.

Hathaway's pal and one-time Academy Awards duet partner Hugh Jackman will play leading man Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Hayden Panettiere, Miranda Cosgrove, Lucy Hale and Emma Watson are also being courted for roles, according to BroadwayWorld.com sources.

The website reports Amy Adams and Rebecca Hall are both in contention for the Fantine role should Hathaway turn it down.

The movie is expected to shoot in the U.K. early next year.
