Joe Wright may team-up with Anne Hathaway for ‘The Lifeboat’

Anne Hathaway

It looks like the director of Pan may have his next project.

Deadline reported on Thursday that director Joe Wright is in talks to join The Lifeboat, an adaptation of Charlotte Rogan’s book. As of now, Anne Hathaway is attached to star in the film.

According to the site, the book is about a young newlywed-turned-widow standing trial in 1914 for murder. The story recounts how with the help of her new husband she survived the sinking of the Empress, a transatlantic ocean liner. She finds herself on a lifeboat, only to discover there are too many people on board, leading to a moral crisis as to who stays and who has to go.

William Broyles Jr. (Cast Away) is writing the script and exec producing.

Hathaway is definitely one of the best actresses working today and the story sounds interesting. Wright is a talented director who has done great work on both adaptations and classic stories with Atonement and Anna Karenina so he could be perfect to do this material. His latest film, Pan, just released a new trailer prior to its fall release.
