Anne Hathaway to produce and star in Puzzler

October 27th, 2011

Anne Hathaway is to produce and star in 'Puzzler'.

The 'One Day' actress - who was recently confirmed for the role of Fantine in musical 'Les Miserables' - has closed a deal to work on the project, described as a female-driven, paranoid thriller.

It will be her debut producing role, and the script for the picture has been written by Karl Gajdusek.

Adam Schulman, Sarah Perlman and Stefan Sonnenfeld will also be producing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Anne has been making a concerted effort to break into the big time in recent years, starring in 'Alice in Wonderland' as the White Queen and currently shooting the role of Catwoman in the eagerly anticipated Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises', directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale.

She will soon begin filming 'Les Miserables' alongside Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe.

However not all of her endeavours have been well received; her hosting of the Oscars with '127 Hours' star James Franco was given a critical beating.
