Anne Hathaway is likely to star in another romantic comedy. However, this movie will be significantly different from previous productions of this type, because the story will happen during … a lockdown! What do we know about this production?
Hollywood returns slowly to the times when new information about new films appeared every now and then. Although there is still a long way to go to that level of project implementation, the film industry is getting back on its feet, and what’s more, recent months have inspired filmmakers to produce new films, as evidenced by the new romantic comedy entitled “Lockdown”.
A romantic comedy during the lockdown? Anne Hathaway is to play the main role!
The film is directed by Doug Liman, the creator of such hits as “Mr & Mrs. Smith” or “Bourne Identity”. According to Variety, the background to this story will be the coronavirus pandemic and the related “lockdown”. Dealine, on the other hand, revealed that work on the comedy will start in London at the end of this month.
Both sources also report that Anne Hathaway, who is reportedly in the middle of recent negotiations with the producers, is to play the lead role. It would be a great choice! Reason? The American has already made films about love. Certainly, some of you have seen these titles: “The Devil Wears Prada”, “One Day”, “Love and Other Drugs”, “Princess Diary” or “Valentine’s Day”. What about the male role? It is rumored that Cillian Murphy may be recruited for Lockdown.
And what do Internet users say? Twitter users did not warmly accept this information. There were voices that this is not a good time to produce such a film, especially as many countries are still fighting the pandemic, and scientists forecast that there will be an increase in infections in the fall.
