Anne Hathaway Likely to Star in Abi Morgan's The Taming of the Shrew Film
15 Jan 2013
Golden Globe Award winner and two-time Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway may star in a new film adaptation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, according to the Wrap.
Debra Hayward, who is among the producers of the Oscar-nominated film of Les Misèrables, is developing the film with writer Abi Morgan (Tender, "The Iron Lady," "The Hour") for Working Title.
The film will be a modern-day take on the battle of the sexes that will be set in Italy. Hayward told Playbill.com in late 2012 that she has discussed the project with Hathaway.
Hathaway recently won a Golden Globe Award for playing Fantine in Tom Hooper's film of Les Misèrables. She also earned an Academy Award nomination for her work. Hathaway performed the role of Viola in the music-filled 2009 Shakespeare in the Park production of Twelfth Night. Her screen appearances include "The Dark Knight Rises," "Rachel Getting Married," "The Devil Wears Prada," "Love and Other Drugs," "Brokeback Mountain" and "Alice in Wonderland."
