Anne Hathaway and Mindy Kaling working on the same project? That's like a gift from the romantic comedy gods - or so we hope it will be.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kaling's co-written a film called "The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie" which, while it sounds rather depressing, is a comedic take on how a woman's poor sense of self-worth has meant a dating life filled with no-good guys. But that all starts to change once "the hottest guy ever" starts wooing her.
Hathaway is attached to star in the rom-com, and Kaling would possibly have a supporting role. The "Mindy Project" actress is also one of the executive producers on the project, as is her co-screenwriter, "The Office" producer Brent Forrester.
"The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie" is still in development, and has yet to find a director.
