Anne Hathaway to Star in Newest Adaptation of <i>The Taming of the Shrew</i>

According to The Wrap, Anne Hathaway will star in the newest adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Screw.

The comedy plot is reported to be another modern-day retelling set in mid-20th century Italy.

Hathaway, a recent Golden Globe-winner for her performance in Les Misérables, will most likely play the role of Katherine, the “shrew” who unwillingly marries the boastful Petruchio.

Debra Hayward will produce the film through Working Title Films. Abi Morgan, known for Shame and The Iron Lady, will write the screenplay. A director has not yet been attached to this project.
