Anne Hathaway is showing off her pipes again. Deadline reports that the Oscar winner will play a fictional musician in “Mother Mary,” an “epic pop melodrama” that will see her joining forces with the history-making auteur behind “I May Destroy You,” Michaela Coel, who will play an “iconic fashion designer” in the pic.
A24 is behind the film, which is being written and directed by David Lowery (“The Green Knight”).
Hathaway took home an Oscar for her supporting role in “Les Misérables” and received a nom for “Rachel Getting Married.” She debuted her latest film, “Eileen,” an adaptation of Ottessa Moshfegh’s novel of the same name, at Sundance in January.
Coel became the first Black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology series for “I May Destroy You,” which she created, starred in, wrote, and directed. The series about writer dealing with the aftermath of being sexually assaulted also netted an Emmy for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series. Coel was last seen in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
