SONG ONE Trailer: Anne Hathaway Finds Love in the Brooklyn Music Scene

by     Posted 40 days ago


The first Song One trailer has been released for writer/director Kate Barker-Froyland’s romantic drama.  Featuring original music composed by Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice, the film stars Anne Hathaway as a young woman who returns home after her brother (Ben Rosenfield) is injured and romantically connects with his favorite musician (Johnny Flynn).  As this trailer shows, nothing brings two people together like a sibling landing in a coma.  The movie didn’t get much attention at Sundance, and I can now see why.  There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the film, but there doesn’t look like there’s anything special about it either.

Watch the Song One trailer after the jump, and check out Steve’s video interviews with Hathaway & Mary Steenburgen and Lewis & Rice from Sundance.  The film opens in theaters and on demand on January 23, 2015.

Anne Hathaway to Sing and Star in SONG ONE; Johnny Flynn to Co-Star

Anne Hathaway will probably pick up her first Oscar on Sunday for her performance in Les Miserables.  Hathaway has entertained the possibility of continuing her singing performances in a stage or screen remake of My Fair Lady, and once upon a time she was attached to star in a Judy Garland biopic (we don’t know if she’s still on board).  No matter what happens with those projects, it looks like Hathaway’s next on-screen musical performance will be in Song One.  As we reported back in May 2012, Hathaway will produce and star, and according to Daily Mail, she’s having a song specifically written for her as well.  In the film, Hathaway plays an archeologist who falls for a rock star (British singer-actor Johnny Flynn) after she returns from a dig when her brother is injured in the U.S.  Kate Barker-Froyland will write and direct, and shooting is scheduled to begin this fall.  I hope Hathaway’s song is about archeology.  There is a noticeable dearth of songs about archeology.

Hathaway is also attached to star in a modern telling of The Taming of the Shrew.  She was also on board Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Robopocalypse, but that film has gone “back to the drawing board to see what is possible.”
