Anne Hathaway Wants To Fight An Alien Menace In The Shower

She's attached to star in and produce the sci-fi action comedy


Working with Christopher Nolan on The Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar has clearly given Anne Hathaway a taste for action and sci-fi elements. She’s producing and planning to star in alien invasion comedy The Shower.

The script comes from TiMER writer/director Jac Shaeffer (also on board to produce), who has come up with a concept that sounds like Attack The Block meets Bridesmaids. Hathaway will play a woman attending a baby shower whose guests are intrigued by a sudden meteor shower. But these are no ordinary rocks streaming from the sky – they turn the men in the area into blood-thirsty aliens and the women must fight to save themselves and the wider world. "Jac has written an awesome sci-fi comedy focusing on funny, fully dimensional female characters," Hathaway tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I feel so lucky to be a part of the team that will bring her enormously talented and fresh voice to the big screen."

Right now, it’s at a very early stage, with Hathaway, Shaeffer and the other producers looking for a director and other cast members before approaching studios or finance companies. But it certainly seems like something studios would be interested in.

Hathaway has The Intern headed here on October 2. She’ll also be back as The White Queen in Wonderland sequel Alice Through The Looking Glass, which is out on May 27 next year.
