Anne Hathaway will star in “Colossal” for Voltage Pictures, according to THR.
The movie reteams the “Interstellar” actress with “Timecrimes” filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo.
In the movie — described as ”Transformers” versus ”Adaptation” and ”Godzilla” meets ”Being John Malkovich”; Hathaway will play Gloria, an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and her fiancé, decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown.
But when news reports surface that a giant lizard is destroying the city of Tokyo, Gloria gradually comes to realize that she is strangely connected to these far-off events via the power of her mind. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
“Colossal is my most ambitious script so far, and probably also the most personal one. Having Anne and this terrific team around goes beyond my craziest expectations,” Vigalondo said.
Added Voltage CEO Nicolas Chartier: “As huge fans of Timecrimes, we are thrilled to be collaborating with a filmmaker as talented as Nacho. He has written an extraordinarily unique piece of material and we look forward to seeing Anne in such a challenging role.”
Hathway will next be seen in the Nancy Meyers comedy “The Intern” alongside Robert De Niro.
