Okay, this is how you pitch a movie: “It’s like ‘Godzilla‘ meets ‘Lost In Translation.’ ” Yep, it sounds ridiculous but you have our attention, and now add an arthouse genre director pairing up with an A-list star and we’re very curious indeed.
THR reports that Anne Hathaway will star in “Colossal” with Nacho Vigalondo (“Timecrimes,” “Open Windows,” “Extraterrestrial“) writing and directing. The story will follow Gloria, who decides to head back home after life in New York City — where has just lost her job and her fiancé — hasn’t panned out. But when she hears the news of a giant lizard laying waste to Tokyo, Gloria realizes she’s connected to it somehow via the power of her mind. WTF. We certainly admire the gumption.
Voltage Pictures is financing and the project is headed to Cannes to drum up sales. No word yet on when this will shoot but we’re interested. Very interested.
