While Anne Hathaway has made some decent rom-coms, she’s also made quite a few dodgy ones, but let’s hope the new one she’s signed up for, The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, is one of the former.
THR reports she’s now attached to the film, which comes from Office writers Mindy Kaling and Brent Forrester, and centres on a woman who only dates losers because she doesn’t believe she can do any better. This begins to change when she is pursued by what THR says is the ‘hottest guy ever’. As yet, it isn’t known who’ll take that role, although we’re assuming anyone who’d take a role based on how hot they are, won’t have many self-esteem problems of their own.
The script landed on the Black List of the best unproduced screenplays, but don’t expect it to reach screens in the near future, as it’s still in the development stage and is still looking for a director.
