Fresh off a Golden Globe win for her supporting turn in the musical adaptation of Les Miserables, actress Anne Hathaway is poised to tackle yet another highly regarded property: William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the ShrewThe Wrap reports that Hathaway will star in a modern-day retelling of the play set in mid-20th century Italy.  Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady) is handling the screenplay, but no director appears to be attached to the project at this time.  Debra Hayward and Working Title are onboard to produce the pic.

Hathaway looks poised to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress next month, so she’ll obviously have quite a few projects to thumb through as her Les Mis follow-up. She was set to star opposite Chris Hemsworth in Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi adaptation Robopocalypse (which would’ve filmed this spring) until Spielberg abruptly pushed that project back.  The actress has long been attached to a developing Judy Garland biopic, but that pic has yet to move into the pre-production stage.
