Anne Hathaway signs up for The Taming of the Shrew

Jan 15 2013, 2:20am CST | by

Anne Hathaway is set to star in an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Taming of the Shrew'.

The actress - who took home Best Supporting actress for her role in 'Les Miserables' at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (13.01.13) - has reportedly signed on to the project, which has just gone into development, according to TheWrap.com.

The script is being written by Abi Morgan - who previously worked on 'Shame' and 'The Iron Lady' - and will update the story to mid 20th century Italy.

'The Taming of the Shrew' - a comedy written around 1590 - has been adapted a number of times for both stage and screen. Notably, it was turned into a musical by Cole Porter called 'Kiss Me, Kate' which first appeared on Broadway in 1951, and it was made into a film in 1967 starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

A more modern take on the tale - which sees a man gradually convince a headstrong woman to marry him - was filmed in 1999 with Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles as '10 Things I Hate About You'.

As well as signing up for the Shakespearian work, Anne has also said she is open to the idea of a spin-off film for her 'The Dark Knight Rises' character Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman.

She told BBC Radio 5 Live: ''I'm a big fan of the idea, but there's nothing happening. It just kind of exists in my imagination''.

''There would always be interest in the wonderful character who I love so much that in a recent Q&A where I had to get up and talk about it, somebody asked me what it was like to say goodbye to her and I burst into tears. Which is just about the most un-Selina Kyle thing you can do.''
