Anne Hathaway Boards Untitled Rom-Com, Sam Claflin Goes 'Adrift', And More

Anne Hathaway has one of the freshest movies of the year in Colossal, a film that defies expectations in just about every way. So it's a little disappointing to hear that she's lining up what sounds like just another rom-com. She'll star in an untitled rom-com for STX about modern dating and technology, which is pretty much what all of these movies are about now. The script comes from Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who recently wrote How to be Single and Valentine's Day, the latter including a role for Hathaway. [Deadline]

Unfortunately, Miles Teller won't be joining Shailene Woodley for Baltasar Kormakur's survival thriller, Adrift. He's out due to scheduling issues, and has been replaced by Me Before You and The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin. Aaron and Jordan Kandell's screenplay tells the true story of Tami Oldham and her fiance Richard Sharp who hit a monumental storm while sailing in the Pacific Ocean. Knocked unconscious, Tami would wake up to find Richard and the life boat gone, all navigating instruments destroyed, and nursing a nasty head wound. Thus began a 41-day journey of survival that took her 1500 miles to the Hawaiian shores. Tami's recollections of her earlier life with Richard as she tries to survive will form the bulk of the story.

Annabelle Wallis, who can be seen right now in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and soon in The Mummy opposite Tom Cruise, has joined a vastly different kind of movie. She'll star alongside Jeremy Renner and Ed Helms in the comedy, Tag, about a group of friends who have been playing a no-holds-barred version of the kids' game for 30 years. Hannibal Buress and Jake Johnson co-star with Jeff Tomsic directing the film, based on a true story. [Deadline]
