From one award-winning film to another? Anne Hathaway can only hope her next film will keep the momentum going!
While on the Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet just last week, we spoke with Les Mis producer, Debra Hayward, who told us she has another project in the works with Anne!
Now, we’re finding out just what the upcoming flick is!
Reportedly, Anne has been tapped to star in an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming Of The Shrew, which will be produced by Hayward and Working Title!
The script will be written by Abi Morgan and is said to be a “modern-day retelling” of the play, set to take place in mid-20th century
Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time the Shakespeare play has been adapted — there was Kiss Me, Kate, then Elizabeth Taylor's film in '67 and also, 10 Things I Hate About You, which starred Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger!
However, if you’re hoping this new project of Anne’s will blow Les Mis out of the water, you might not want to get your hopes up just yet!
Hayward told us:
“I’ve got a number of other things [in the works]… none of which will ever live up to Les Mis!”
They DID set the bar pretty high with that one! LOLz!
We’re looking forward to hearing more about the adaptation, though, and what other talent will be attached!!
