Last year was an incredibly busy year for fans of Anne Hathaway. The Oscar-winning actress had no fewer than three films hit theaters, as well as one major TV series on Amazon Prime. And it appears that she’s not slowing down anytime soon, as the actress has more films coming in 2020 and recently signed on to star in yet another, titled “French Children Don’t Throw Food.”
According to THR, Hathaway is set to star in “French Children Don’t Throw Food,” a film adaptation of the autobiography from author Pamela Druckerman. The film will tell the story of an American journalist that moves to Paris for her husband’s job and raises her family amongst a culture that seemingly has raising children all figured out. This is in contrast to the journalist that is constantly struggling to find a balance between her career and motherhood.
The latest draft of the script is said to be written by Jamie Minoprio and Jonathan Stern. ‘French Children’ is being produced by Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin’s Blueprint Pictures, in partnership with StudioCanal. Blueprint is probably best known for being the production company behind the Oscar-winning film, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” as well as the recent film, “Emma,” from filmmaker Autumn de Wilde.
As mentioned earlier, Hathaway had quite a few projects get released last year, including the films “Serenity,” “The Hustle,” and “Dark Waters.” In addition, she also starred in the series “Modern Love” for Amazon Prime Video. This year, she’s already released one film, the Netflix original, “The Last Thing He Wanted.” And depending on how this COVID-19 pandemic plays out, we may actually see her WB film, “The Witches,” arrive in theaters.
For now, it appears that “French Children Don’t Throw Food” is still in the early stages of development, with no director attached. And with Hollywood in a state of disarray right now, it’s unclear when we might expect production on the new drama to begin.
