EMMY ROSSUM (pictured) who has signed on to star as Christine, the young woman who becomes the object of desire for The Phantom Of The Opera. She will star in Joel Schumacher's movie (based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical), with Gerard Butler as the disfigured musical maestro who stalks her through the Paris Opera. Ms Rossum will be just 17 when cameras start rolling at Pinewood studios. Schumacher picked her because she can act - and she satisfied Lloyd Webber's insistence that his Christine have a terrific voice.
