Peter Sollett to Direct Romantic Comedy From 30 ROCK Scribe, Anne Hathaway Wanted for Lead

     September 9, 2011


Director Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is in negotiations to helm an untitled romantic comedy for Lionsgate. 30 Rock scribe Kay Cannon wrote the screenplay, which centers on a career woman looking to break her streak of losing romantic relationships to her job. Risky Business reports that Anne Hathaway has been offered the lead role in the wholly original project, which is absolutely not like every other romantic comedy ever made.

The report is quick to point out that Hathaway has not accepted the role, and negotiations have yet to take place, but she does have a clear schedule (for the moment) once she wraps on The Dark Knight Rises. In addition to her work on 30 Rock, Cannon also scripted the upcoming college a capella group-centered flick Pitch Perfect which is set to star Anna Kendrick.
