Brad Ingelsby had to wait out a torturous development for his script The Low Dweller to eventually become Out Of The Furnace. He’ll be hoping for slightly quicker progress with a new spec, The Burning Woman**, which once again has Ridley Scott’s Scott Free company producing and this time has Anne Hathaway considering the lead.

Set once again in the blue-collar milieu of US industrial towns, **The Burning Woman **focuses on a 32-year-old Pennsylvania woman whose teenage daughter goes missing, leaving behind an infant grandson to raise. The story then takes place across 11 years as the woman searches for some closure on the case while caring for the boy, finding her way ever closer to the truth of what happened.

According to Deadline, Ingelsby developed the idea with Michael Pruss and wrote the main character with Hathaway in mind. She liked it, jumped aboard and will be the main selling point as Scott and the producers start shopping the script to distributors.

Hathaway, last seen in Interstellar, has most recently on Nancy Meyers’ The Intern opposite Robert De Niro and returned to Wonderland for the Alice sequel Thorough The Looking Glass, which will be out next year. Ingelsby has seen several scripts sell, including A Better Place and crime thriller Run All Night, which stars Liam Neeson and arrives here on March 13.
