Anne Hathaway has landed a part in the adaptation of ‘French Children Don’t Throw Food’ which is currently in development at Studiocanal.
Based on the autobiography from Pamela Druckerman, the story follows an American journalist who moves to Paris for her husband’s job and raises a family there. As she tries to figure out how to balance her family and career — and battle the feelings that she is failing at both — she observes her French neighbours and friends uncover the secrets behind parenting astonishingly well-behaved French children. She learns, however, that everyone, no matter how perfect they might appear, has their own problems.
Described as ‘Julie & Julia’ in tone, the most recent draft of the script has been penned by Jamie Minoprio and Jonathan Stern.
Blueprint Pictures are set to produce.
Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin’s Blueprint was behind the award-winning ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ and most recently Focus Features’ Jane Austen adaptation ‘Emma’.
Hathaway was last seen in the political and environment ‘Dark Waters’ alongside Mark Ruffalo. Her upcoming projects include Dee Rees’ drama ‘The Last Thing He Wanted’ alongside Ben Affleck and Robert Zemeckis’ reboot of ‘The Witches’ in which she plays the Grand High Witch.
