Newly-married actress Anne Hathaway has been bringing her general awesomeness to the big screen for a while now. And she clearly plans to keep that up, which means more happy times for us at the movies! After her brilliant performance as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, we got to see the amazing trailer for Les Misérables along with some behind-the-scenes footage. And now we’re getting reports about an upcoming movie written by Mindy Kaling who is kind of a genius when it comes writing scripts (see The Office and The Mindy Project). Mindy and Anne are easily two of my fave people in Hollyweird so this is just awesome news! Click inside to learn more!
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Anne Hathaway is attached to star in The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, a romantic comedy from Good Universe co-written by Mindy Kaling.
The story centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.
Kaling, who likely would take on a supporting role, co-wrote the Black List-charting script with Brent Forrester.

As generic as the script sounds, I cannot wait for this movie! In many ways it sounds like yet another romantic comedy but if Mindy Kaling is writing and Anne Hathaway is taking the lead then I think we can expect very good things. I really hope Mindy does take on a supporting role; the thought of the two of them on screen together just makes life happy.
Who else thinks this is awesome news? Between this and the new Ryan Gosling/Michael Fassbender/Christian Bale situation popping off next year, methinks this is about as good as it gets.
