Anne Hathaway will be at The Opposite Of Love

Up-and-coming actress Anne Hathaway (Get Smart) has snagged the lead role in The Opposite Of Love, based on an eponymous bestseller by Julie Buxbaum. She will play a lawyer who’s afraid to commit and sees her life change after she turns down her boyfirend’s marriage proposal. Virtually unknown actress Kara Holden (Pride & Prejudice) makes her screenwriting debut with this film for some reason.

Could this be a new The Devil Wears Prada for Hathaway, who recently expressed her enthusiasm for a Get Smart sequel and declared that Prada sequel plans have been scrapped? In any case you can next see the actress in the drama Rachel Getting Married, which opens in the US on October 3rd after having made the festival rounds. Also, watch the trailer for her by-the-numbers looking Bride Wars.

New Trailer: The Soloist

Honestly this trailer looks rather poorly made to me, but The Soloist remains one of my most anticipated films of this year, simply because it marks the third feature effort for British director Joe Wright, whose previous two films, Pride & Prejudice and Atonement, are amazing masterpieces which you should watch if you haven’t already.

The Soloist is based on the true story of schizophrenic violinist prodigy Nathaniel Ayers and the Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez who rediscovered him as a homeless man playing half-broken instruments on LA street corners. Lopez went on to befriend Ayers and wrote a series of articles on him, followed by a book which served as the basis for this film.

Talented screenwriter Susannah Grant (Charlotte’s Web) penned the adaptation, which stars Jamie Foxx (The Kingdom), Robert Downey Jr. (Tropic Thunder) and Catherine Keener (Into The Wild). The Soloist will premiere in the US on November 21st.
