Oscar-nominated actress Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married) is now making her transition into producing, starting with the thriller Puzzler. The Paramount project has been pitched as a female-centric, paranoia thriller similar to Three Days of the Condor. In the 1976 Sydney Pollack thriller, Robert Redford stars as Joe Turner, code name Condor, who finds his CIA researcher co-workers dead and must figure out why as he tries to stay steps ahead of the assassins. One can assume that Hathaway will take on a similar role.
The script for Puzzler will be penned by Karl Gajdusek (Dead Like Me) who also wrote the recent thriller Trespass, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman. As this is Hathway’s first time producing, she will also be joined by Adam Schulman, Sarah Perlman and Stefan Sonnenfeld, according to a report by THR.
