Anne Hathaway‘s most recent project was divisive to say the least, with one of our writers thinking One Day was one of the worst of the year and the other praising it. With Hathaway donning the Catwoman suit for her next film, The Dark Knight Rises, it should yield a more favorable response among crowds, but she is expanding her horizons even further and getting into producing, THR reports.
Hathaway has finished a deal to produce a new Paramount thriller titled Puzzler, in which she will also star in. The plot is locked down for now, but it is being described as “a female-driven, paranoid thriller.” It comes from Karl Gajdusek, the man who gave us Joel Schumacher‘s absolutely atrocious Nicolas Cage/Nicole Kidman home invasion thriller Trespass, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. It is being compared to the Sydney Pollack classic Three Days of the Condor, starring Robert Redford.
There is no word on when this would begin production, but Hathaway is moving on to Tom Hooper‘s The King’s Speech follow-up Les Misérables with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe after her time with Christopher Nolan. That adaptation will hit on December 7th, 2012 while her superhero film arrives on July 20th.
What do you think about Puzzler being Hathaway’s first producing gig?
