The company will finance and produce the drama based on a script by Kate Barker-Froyland.

Worldview Entertainment has struck a deal to finance and produce Song One, starring Anne Hathaway.

Lotus Entertainment is pitching the drama to buyers at the Marche du Film in Cannes.

The film is based on a script from Kate Barker-Froyland who is also directing. Hathaway, Jonathan Demme and Adam Shulman are among the producers.

The film is about a woman who develops a relationship with the favorite musician of her sick brother.

Worldview is also a backer of David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn, which added Al Pacino to its cast just before the start of Cannes.
