ANNE HATHAWAY in Talks to Star in Warner Bros.' SESAME STREET Musical
Anne Hathaway is currently being scouted by WB to star in their upcoming Sesame Street movie, which is said to be a musical. Emmy-nominated Jonathan Krisel, co-creator of Portlandia, is set to direct, and Hathaway is the only cast member in talks so far.
Collider reports that if Hathaway is cast, she will play the part of Sally, which is the name of the girl in the first episode of Sesame Street. We don’t currently know if that plays a part in the plot, or if it’s just paying homage, but either way, it’s cool.
I am not positive that we absolutely need a Sesame Street movie, but I’m ready to be convinced! I know my youngest will be excited. And I am a sucker for a musical. So hopefully it ends up being a fun family movie.
Does Sesame Street strike a sentimental chord for you? How about your kids; do they still watch?
