Anne Hathaway has been offered the lead role in an as-yet-untitled romcom, based on a script by
writer-producer Kay Cannon.
Peter Sollet ( Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist ) is in negotiations to direct the movie, which will be Hathaway's Dark Knight Rises follow-up, should she sign on.
Anything will sound like a bit of a disappointment coming straight after Nolan's Bat-threequel, but Hathaway has proven time and time again that she makes for an extremely engaging romcom lead ( Bride Wars notwithstanding), and her star status should ensure she's getting the pick of the best scripts out there.
There are a couple more grains of hope in that news. Hopefully Cannon will bring some of 30 Rock 's smarts, sass and snappy one-liners to the script, and Nick And Norah had more charm and cool than your average genre offering.
Cannon recently wrote the script for Pitch Perfect , the a cappella comedy with Anna Kendrick attached to star.
Hathaway has recently been linked to Tom Hooper's big screen take on Les Miserables , but nothing's been confirmed on that front yet.
You have to wait until 20 July 2012 to see her interpretation of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises .
