Anne Hathaway has entered negotiations to play a woman who refuses to grow up in Lynn Shelton's new comedy 'Laggies'.
Anne Hathaway is in talks to star in 'Laggies'.
The Oscar-winning actress has opted to make Lynn Shelton's coming-of-age comedy her next move after her stellar turn in 'Les Miserables' and will join an A-list cast including Sam Rockwell and Chloe Moretz, Deadline reports.
Anne is due to play 28-year-old Megan, who gets spooked by her boyfriend's marriage proposal and panics, pretending to go on a career retreat.

Chloe will play Anne's character's 16-year-old new best friend, Annika, while 'Seven Psychopaths' star Sam is expected to play an older character named Craig.
Chloe shared her excitement on Twitter, posting: ''Thank you to Lynn for letting me do this awesome movie with Annie :) I'm so excited to do this :)''
The comedy has been penned by Andrea Seigel and Steve Golin, Alix Madigan and Rosalie Swedlin are on board to produce for Anonymous Content.
