Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Colin Firth and Others Sign on for Audio-Book Line

For those who’ve yearned to be lulled to sleep by Samuel L. Jackson reading Chester Himes, here’s some very good news

Starting early next year, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Kim Basinger and a host of other stars will be available to read you a bedtime story.

Audio-book company announced Friday that it's launching a new line of audio books read by some of Hollywood's biggest talents, including the above names.

Also participating in the line: Jennifer Connolly (who'll read Paul Bowles' "The Sheltering Sky"), Dustin Hoffman (who's tacking Jerzy Kosinski's "Being There") and Samuel L. Jackson (who shall recite Chester Himes' "A Rage in Harlem" — to which he'll hopefully bring the same panache as his reading of "Go the F— to Sleep.")
