Any chance you recall the Cabaret¬†revival Anne Hathaway was rumored to be involved with, then wasn't? Michelle Williams — the three-time Oscar nominee, not the many-time Beyoncé collaborator — is now onboard, joining Alan Cumming. Williams will play Sally Bowles, the role Liza Minnelli tackled in the 1972 movie from Bob Fosse. Emma Stone was originally eyed for the role, but she's busy making Amazing Spider-Mans. Performances should begin in early 2014.
