Anne Hathaway is set to team with “Timecrimes” filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo for “Colossal” at Voltage Pictures.
Hathaway plays Gloria, an ordinary woman who loses her job and fiance and decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown.
When 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.
Trying prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.
The project is being sold to foreign buyers at Cannes this year. In a statement, Vigalondo says: “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.”
