Anne Hathaway is set to star and produce STXFilms on a contemporary romantic comedy from screenwriters Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein. Adam Shulman will produce with Jonathan Rice co-producing.

Adam Fogelson, STXFilms Chairman said:

“We have been looking for ways to work with Annie since launching STX, and when she came to us with this idea, we knew right away that we wanted to make this movie with her. This is a modern-day look at love, dating and hookups with a very contemporary and authentic voice that speaks to a generation that casually swipes right to find a mate. As technology has allowed for a new era of matchmaking, it also comes with a lot of comedy and consequences and Anne wanted to explore that territory in funny, relevant and very unexpected ways.”

Hathaway said:

“I am excited to be collaborating with STXFilms on this movie. It’s been really heartening how willing they are to take risks and explore what we all hope will be a great and modern comedic story.”

This project marks another female-driven film produced and distributed by STXFilms (six of which 11 films starred or were directed by women). The company will release six more.
