Mindy Kaling for the win!
The Office writer/side character turned showrunning TV star of The Mindy Project is moving (speedily) to the big screen!
Aaaaand she's doing it with megastar Anne Hathaway!
The recently married Anne has signed on to star in the Kaling-written comedy, The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie.
Mindy co-wrote the blacklisted comedy with Office writer Brent Forrester, and it's supposedly the shiznit.
Here's what it's about:
"A woman whose low-self esteem leads her to date a bunch of losers, but her life turns around when a hot piece of man meat starts pursuing her. It's an interesting concept that twists the standard formula on its head."
Sounds Bridget Jones-ish — and we are ALL about it!
If this flick is as good as it's expected to be (like, Bridesmaids good) Mindy may be getting her very first case of Oscar buzz!
Gurl is on FIRE!
