Deadline is exclusively reporting that Anne Hathaway is set to star in contained thriller with sci-fi elements called o2.
Anne Hathaway will be playing a woman who wakes up inside a cryogenic chamber, with no memory of how she got there. She must escape the chamber before her air runs out.
The report states that the sci-fi elements will make the film a cousin to Gravity and Buried, as the scenes will largely be devoted to a single performer. IM Global is closing a deal to finance the film that will be working around the $10m budget range. The script has been written by Christie LeBlanc, Anne Hathaway will also be producing the project alongside Suzan Bymel, Echo Lake’s Adam Riback and James Engle, as well as IM Gobal’s Stuart Ford and Greg Shapiro.
The project is moving quickly to find a director.
