Anne Hathaway to Headline The Taming of the Shrew Adaptation

Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady) will provide the screenplay. No director has been announced.

Hathaway, who also starred this year in The Dark Knight Rises, would likely play the leading role of Katherina, the play’s titular “shrew,” whose life is overturned when she’s forced into marriage with the silver-tongued Petruchio.

Debra Hayward is producing through Working Title Films.
