Ok, this is one of the more interesting projects I've heard about in a while. TIMECRIMES and OPEN WINDOWS director Nacho Vigalondo is set to write and direct COLOSSAL for Voltage Pictures, a film that is being described as "GODZILLA meets LOST IN TRANSLATION". And now THR is reporting that INTERSTELLAR and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES actress Anne Hathaway is set to star.

Hathaway will play…

…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.

This sounds completely and utterly insane…but in a good way! I'm always down for some kaiju action, and Vigalondo seems to have whipped up a different approach that sounds rather intriguing.

Voltage Pictures is fully financing Colossal and will launch the project to foreign buyers in Cannes. CAA, which is representing domestic rights, packaged the movie and arranged financing in addition to representing Hathaway, Vigalondo and producer Nahikari Ipiña. Ipiña is producing via her Sayaka Producciones. Garrett Basch and Vigalondo are executive producing.

Vigalondo shares…

"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."

I can't wait to hear more on this one!
