Hathaway, Pattinson Plan Sci-Fi Projects

Anne Hathaway is attached to star in and produce the female-centric sci-fi action comedy “The Shower” which had its script by Jac Schaeffer appear on last year’s Blacklist.

Said to be in line with the tone of “This is the End” and “Attack the Block,” the story follows the female guests of a baby shower when a nearby meteor storm threatens to unleash blood-hungry aliens upon the world – and only these women can stop them.

Hathaway, Schaeffer, Adam Shulman, Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim will produce the project which will seek a director and actors before taking it to financiers or studios.

Meanwhile, “Twilight” series star Robert Pattinson is confirmed to have scored a lead role in a new untitled science fiction project by filmmaker Claire Denis (“Beau Travail”) in a project that marks her English-language debut.

Zadie Smith and Nick Laird penned the script which will take place beyond the solar system in a future time that feels like the present. Pattinson is attached to play the lead, an astronaut. Filming begins later this year or early 2016 in Cologne.
