Anne Hathaway Opens Up About The ‘Challenging’ Script Of Upcoming Film ‘Eileen’
Anne Hathaway, the Oscar-winning actress, recently shared her thoughts about the script for her upcoming film, Eileen.
The movie, based on Ottessa Moshfegh‘s novel of the same name, is directed by William Oldroyd and stars Thomasin McKenzie alongside Hathaway.
During an appearance at the Sundance Studio, Hathaway admitted that the script for Eileen was initially daunting for her. She explained that she was drawn to the project because of her admiration for Oldroyd‘s previous work, specifically his 2016 film Lady Macbeth.
Hathaway said, “I came to this as a fan of Will’s. I’d seen Lady Macbeth and like probably a lot of people I thought it was the freshest thing I’d seen in ages. So when the script came in I was inclined to say yes.”
She also shared that the script was challenging to understand at first, describing it as “dark and really funny but it’s a tricky one.” She went on to say that it took her several reads to feel like she had a handle on it, as it is “unusually smart.”
Eileen is set to premiere at Sundance on January 21st, and details about its release on other platforms will be announced soon. The movie promises to be an intriguing watch with a challenging script and a talented cast.
