Anne Hathaway Is Making the Most Annoying Movie Ever

Outlying Princess Diaries devotees aside, the world has pretty much decided that Anne Hathaway is annoying. It might be how much she reminds us of the overzealous theater kids from our high school days, or her penchant for award show mic stealing, but we’ve all pretty much jumped on the bandwagon by now. So Anne Hathaway stuck on a lifeboat after losing her new husband? Oh, the pouting that will ensue…

The film in question is an adaptation of Charlotte Rogan’s novel The Lifeboat, which The Hollywood Reporter reports is casting the Les Miserables star to headline as widow and Poseidon’s latest victim Grace Winter. The story, set in 1914, places Grace on trial for murder following the tumultuous events at sea. After realizing that the lifeboat providing sanctuary to the passengers of the sunken transatlantic Empress is grossly overcrowded, those aboard institute their own private ad hoc system of Lord of the Flies-ian population control to reduce the number of people on the ship.

So, as we can anticipate a whole lot of whining and impassioned diatribes about her right to live — not to mention the equally ribald courtroom scenes that seem like they’ll act as bookends to the flashback story — we might be considering the increasingly pleasant-sounding drowning alternative on this one.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
