Don’t worry, we’re not in any way being rude about her weight, as Anne Hathaway is only planning to be Colossal in a new movie, as THR reports that she’s attached to a film of that name from Timecrimes and Open Windows director Nacho Vigalondo.
It appears it’s going to be a somewhat unusual movie, as it’s described as being Godzilla meets Lost in Translation, quite how that’s going to work is anyone’s guess, as previously those two movie’s biggest connection is that they’re both set in Japan.
The film will see Hathaway as ‘Gloria, an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and her fiancé, decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown. But when news reports surface that a giant lizard is destroying the city of Tokyo, Gloria gradually comes to realize that she is strangely connected to these far-off events via the power of her mind. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.’
It appears that this will be arthouse kaiju, as it’s also compared to being like ‘Transformers versus Adaptation’.
Vigalondo comments, “Colossal is my most ambitious script so far, and probably also the most personal one. Having Anne and this terrific team around goes beyond my craziest expectations.”
