    Her project list continues to grow. Currently filming Song One, is attached to Interstellar and now The Lifeboat.

    Sounds like a dark and dramatic role/movie. This could hopefully equate to another Oscar.

    I was just about to post this, should have known who would have beaten me to it with his Anne scanner always on! :D

    It sounds a bit like Life of Pi minus the animals.

    Joe Wright to Direct Anne Hathaway in The Lifeboat


    By Max Evry ON
    May 28, 2015

    Deadline is reporting that director Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina) will direct Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway (Interstellar, The Dark Knight Rises) in The Lifeboat for Focus Features and Working Title.
    Based on Charlotte Rogan’s 2012 book, The Lifeboat takes place in the summer of 1914 when newlywed Grace Winters (Hathaway) survives the sinking of transatlantic ocean liner Empress. Now aboard an over-capacity lifeboat, the remaining passengers must choose factions to decide who stays and who goes.
    Hathaway boarded the project back in 2013 after scoring her Oscar win for Working Title’s Les Miserables, and William Broyles Jr. (Cast Away) will write the script and executive produce. Working Title’s Tim Beva, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin will produce The Lifeboat with Film 360’s Suzan Bymel and Ben Forkner.
    Wright’s next film Pan, the fantastical prequel story to J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan mythos, was supposed to open this summer but was pushed back to October 9 by Warner Bros. Pictures

    Why does this sound similar to Hitchcock's film with the same name 'Lifeboat', also based on a book (John Steinbeck)? A wartime drama set on a lifeboat with several British and US service people after their ship and a U-boat sink each other. One of the survivors is a German, and they were debating whether to throw him overboard.

    Here's Lifeboat (1944) entry in IMdb:

    Wasn't there a 90's sci-fi remake of this starring CCH Pounder? I vaguely remember seeing it on daytime TV as a kid.

    Turkish-French filmmaker Deniz Gamze Erguven (“Mustang”) has been slated to replace Joe Wright as the director of the film adaptation of Charlotte Rogan’s novel “The Lifeboat” at Focus Features, Working Title and Film 360.
    Anne Hathaway is attached to both produce and star as Grace Winter, a young woman who recounts the tale of how she survived a shipwreck at sea while on trial for murder in 1914.
    The film explores the moral crisis that presents itself when she discovers there are too many people on board her lifeboat and if some don’t abandon ship, they’ll all perish.
    William Broyles Jr. penned the script while Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Liza Chasin, Suzan Bymel and Ben Forkner are producing. Erguven recently wrapped the L.A. riots film “Kings” starring Daniel Craig and Halle Berry.

    I'm okay with this as long as the film gets made. I think it has real potential.

    And on a seperate point, I couldn't have been any prouder seeing Anne speaking before the UN about a topic she deeply cares about. Good on her. Anne is such a natural beauty and always has her heart in the right place. :hrt:
