It looks like Anne Hathaway will be putting her drama-club-iness to good use this fall: According to the Daily Mail, Hathaway is set to star as Sally Bowles in a new revival of Cabaret — with Alan Cumming reportedly reprising his Tony-winning role as the Emcee! Hathaway performed a bunch of Cabaret numbers last fall at a benefit for the Public Theater, so she knows her willkommens from her bienvenues. This new production hasn’t been officially announced yet, but Cumming did recently mention that he’d be returning to Broadway and that the show was “something [he] did before and we’re doing it again.” Maybe this time you’ll win, Anne Hathaway!

Update: Booo, not true, according to Hathaway’s publicist. “There are no discussions going on about this project for Anne,” Hathaway’s rep told the Times. Uh, start those discussions, Hatha-team!
