Anne Hathaway is making the transition from actress to producer. The star has closed a deal to produce and topline Puzzler, a thriller set up at Paramount.
The project is described as a female-driven, paranoid thriller in the vein of Three Days of the Condor.

Hathaway's recent credits include One Day, Love and Other Drugs and Alice in Wonderland. She co-hosted the Oscars in February and will star as Catwoman in next summer's The Dark Knight Rises.
Perlman and Sonnenfeld are producing the planned Lionsgate thriller Dead Island, based on a popular video game.
Hathaway is represented by CAA and Management 360. Gajdusek is represented by Verve and Management 360.
