Anne Hathaway has signed on to produce and star in a new romantic comedy from STXfilms, which has been written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (How to Be Single, The Vow, He’s Just Not That Into You).
“I am excited to be collaborating with STXfilms on this movie,” said Hathaway. “It’s been really heartening how willing they are to take risks and explore what we all hope will be a great and modern comedic story.”
“We have been looking for ways to work with Annie since launching STX, and when she came to us with this idea, we knew right away that we wanted to make this movie with her,” added STXfilms Chairman Adam Fogelson. “This is a modern-day look at love, dating and hookups with a very contemporary and authentic voice that speaks to a generation that casually swipes right to find a mate. As technology has allowed for a new era for matchmaking, it also comes with a lot of comedy and consequences and Anne wanted to explore that territory in funny, relevant and very unexpected ways.”
Anne Hathaway can currently be seen in UK cinemas in the monster movie Colossal, and has several upcoming projects on her slate including Ocean’s Eight, Nasty Women, The Lifeboat, Serenity, and Live Fast Die Hot.
