Anne Hathaway to Star, Produce Alien Invasion Comedy ‘The Shower’


Anne Hathaway is set to star and produce alien invasion comedy, “The Shower,” a female-centric sci-fi action comedy that made last year’s Blacklist, the annual listing of best not-yet made screenplays in Hollywood.

Producing with Hathaway are her husband Adam Shulman as well as Andrew Lauren, the son of Ralph Lauren, and D.J. Gugenheim. Jac Schaeffer, who wrote Shower, will also produce.

The story begins with a bright baby shower when the guests find themselves under darker skies: a meteor shower. These meteors, however, turn men into blood-hungry aliens and the women must fight to not only save themselves but also the world.

The project is described as being tonally in the vein of the Seth Rogen apocalypse comedy This is the End, cult hit Attack the Block and Kristen WiigMelissa McCarthy’s Bridesmaids.
