The sci-fi comedy — which is being compared to “Bridesmaids,” “This is the End” and “Attack the Block” — finds men on Earth turning into monsters following a meteor shower and women into heroes who save the planet. The project is based on a Black List script by Jac Schaeffer (“TiMER”), who will also produce.
“Jac has written an awesome sci-fi comedy centered around funny, fully dimensional female characters,” said Hathaway. “I feel so lucky to be a part of the team that will bring her enormously talented and fresh voice to the big screen.”
Added Schaeffer, “Anne is the perfect actor to anchor a story that is ultimately about female friendship, with a lot of ass-kicking along the way.”
