Anne Hathaway to Star in and Produce Paranoid-Thriller ‘Puzzler’

Anne HathawayTo us, it might seem like Anne Hathaway has it all. But apparently, the young star needs more out of this tireless vacuum of mania we understand to be life. So, she has decided to take on the role of producing. Hathaway will both star in and produce the developing thriller film Puzzler, which is not the name of a new villain in The Dark Knight Rises, but pretty much the most thrillery movie title I’ve ever heard.

The new film is said to be reminiscent of Three Days of the Condor, the 1975 Sydney Pollack film wherein a CIA researcher (Robert Redford) must discover who murdered all of his coworkers. Cautious to trust anyone, Redford’s character pursues this mystery with a double dose of paranoia, which will be just as large a theme in the upcoming Hathaway film.

Onboard to write the script for Puzzler is Karl Gajdusek, the screenwriter responsible for the new Nic Cage/Nicole Kidman ransom movie Trespass, as well as a handful of Dead Like Me episodes.

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.
