Anne Hathaway to Star in Sci-Fi Thriller 'O2'
Anne Hathaway is stocking up on O2.
The actress will star in the sci-fi thriller, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed, as a woman who mysteriously wakes up inside a cryogenic chamber and must escape before her air supply runs out.
Christie LeBlanc wrote the script, which is largely devoted to a single performer, and marks her feature film debut. Suzan Bymel and Hathaway are producing with Echo Lake's Adam Riback and James Engle, and IM Global's Stuart Ford and Greg Shapiro will also be producers. IM Global is financing the $10 million project, and CAA is representing domestic rights. No director is currently attached, and production is eyed to begin in the fall.
Hathaway, who just wrapped production on the starry heist spinoff Oceans Eight, is also set to star in the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake Nasty Women with Rebel Wilson, the Steven Knight drama Serenity with Matthew McConaughey, as well as Deniz Gamze Erguven's survival tale The Lifeboat. She is repped by CAA and Management 360.
