Anne Hathaway To Star in Limited Series 'The Ambassador’s Wife'

According to Variety Anne Hathaway has signed on to star in the limited series “The Ambassador’s Wife,” from Entertainment One and the Mark Gordon Co.

Project is based on the newly released novel by author Jennifer Steil about a British woman who is kidnapped in Yemen, setting off an ordeal for her and her ambassador husband.

The project is the most high-profile TV effort to come from Mark Gordon Co. since he set up shop in July with eOne in an effort to build a mini film and TV studio. Entertainment One will finance “Ambassador’s Wife,” which will make the starry package even more of a hot property when it is shopped to TV and digital outlets.

There’s no word yet about a writer for the TV adaptation. Hathaway will also serve as a producer on the series.

Ambassador’s Wife” continues a trend of limited series attracting top-flight movie stars for TV productions that don’t come with the same open-ended commitment as a traditional series. The first season of HBO’s “True Detective,” with the marquee value provided by stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, set off a frenzy in the creative community to package limited series around talent that otherwise wouldn’t commit to TV. Hathaway’s upcoming pics include “The Intern” opposite Robert De Niro and “Alice Through the Looking Glass.”

“ The Ambassador’s Wife’ is an incredible story that pulls you in immediately and resonates with all of us based on the images and news headlines that are pervasive in our lives today,” said Gordon. “We are so fortunate to have Anne starring in this timely, gripping and compassionate drama. She is in a league all her own, and we cannot think of anyone who can better portray Steil’s complex heroine.”

Gordon has said that he intends to shepherd projects from other producers through his eOne shingle. There’s no word yet on producing auspices for “Ambassador’s Wife.”

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
