The first look of Anne and Matthew McConaughey in Serenity – the new film from Steven Knight – has been released.
McConaughey plays a fishing boat captain on a small island in the tropics whose reality is altered when his past resurfaces. Further plot details, including Hathaway’s role, are being kept under wraps for now. The supporting cast includes Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong, and Diane Lane. The film is currently in production on the island Mauritius.
The movie currently does not have a U.S. distributor, and production is expected to continue through the remainder of the summer.
Anne Hathaway is getting behind the wheel of the pink dream convertible for Sony’s Barbie movie.
She is in negotiations to star in the feature project, that was previously attached to Amy Schumer (who had to drop citing ‘scheduling conflicts’).
Alethea Jones, the rising Australian director, is in talks to direct the movie after being handpicked by Hathaway, who was integral in the search for a filmmaker.
According to THR The Barbie movie, at least the Schumer version, was to turn the classic Barbie mythology on its head, putting a contemporary spin on the toy with an emphasis on feminism and identity.
The script told of a woman that slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit in to perfect land of Barbies and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset. The fish-out-of-water tale is supposed to be in the vein of Big or Enchanted.
Amy Pascal, Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing.
The studio is still eyeing a June 29, 2018 release but one thing that is keeping things in flux is Hathaway’s schedule. Sony is hesitant to move the release date and there’s a chance that if Hathaway’s schedule isn’t worked out in a satisfactory way, a deal may not make.
The studio would not comment on the negotiations.
Look these amazing news! Deadline is reporting that Anne will star (and produce!) O2 and for what it seems, it will be like Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity – a single performance movie.
Anne Hathaway will star in O2, a contained thriller with sci-fi elements that is fast coming together for a fall shoot. IM Global is closing a deal to finance a film that will fall in the $10 million budget range. In the script by Christie LeBlanc, Hathaway will play a woman who wakes up inside a cryogenic chamber, with no memory of how she got there. She must escape the chamber before her air runs out. Its sci-fi elements make it a closer cousin to Gravity than Buried, even though like both of those, the scenes are largely devoted to a single performer. Suzan Bymel and Hathaway have just signed on to produce with Echo Lake’s Adam Riback and James Engle, and IM Global’s Stuart Ford and Greg Shapiro will also be producers. They will quickly find a director, with CAA representing domestic rights.
IM Global is the same company behind Serenity, that stars Anne and Matthew McConaughey.
Anne visited last week the Watch What Happens Live show. You will find in our gallery promotional images and also screen captures of the after show.
