The Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway has been cast as the lead in Colossal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The will mix in elements of big budget popcorn films like Transformers and Godzilla with quirky and thought provoking films like Being John Malkovich and Adaptation.
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. - THR
The film will be written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes). "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 stated.
