'Timecrimes' Director Taps Anne Hathaway for 'Colossal'
Published May 12, 2015In 2007, Nacho Vigalondo established himself as a director to watch with the stylish time-travel thriller Timecrimes. He's since released a handful of shorts, as well as the web-based Elijah Wood/Sasha Grey thriller Open Windows. Up next, he'll direct Anne Hathaway in a new film called Colossal.
The film is described as Godzilla meets Lost in Translation. Hathaway plays Gloria, a woman who loses her job and ends her relationship, moving back to her small-town home. She soon learns that a giant lizard is destroying Tokyo, and feels strangely connected to the events through her mind. In order to stop the destruction, she must figure out why the event is significant to her.
"Colossal is my most ambitious script so far, and probably also the most personal one. Having Anne and this terrific team around goes beyond my craziest expectations," Vigalondo said in a statement.
The film is being funded by Voltage Pictures and produced by Nahikari Ipiña. Vigalondo will also serve as executive producer alongside Garrett Basch.
