We’re big believers that two heads are better than one, but we're even bigger believers that two witty, perfectly coifed, excuse-us-while-we-gush-over-how-much-we-adore-them heads are the best. We just got word that NYC-newlywed Anne Hathaway is set to star in The Low Self Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, a romantic comedy co-written by…wait for it…Mindy Kaling! To say that we’re freaking out would be a major understatement.
And, just when we thought the news couldn’t get any better, there are rumors circulating that Kaling will take on a supporting role in the film. The screenplay, which Kaling co-wrote with Brent Forrester, focuses, on Anne Hathaway as, yes, Lizzie Gillespie, a woman whose painfully low self-esteem has limited her to dating total, excuse us, losers. Suddenly, à la Hollywood, things take a turn for the interesting when she is pursued by “The hottest guy ever.” We’re plenty confident in Kaling’s ability to elevate a ho-hum rom-com into a memorable, witty, and intelligent film. Add to that the fact that Anne Hathaway will be delivering the lines and our tickets are as good as purchased. (The Hollywood Reporter)
