Colossal

Hey folks, just a quick Colossal PSA. We love sharing stuff with you here on Tumblr and will continue to do so forever. BUT. Outside of Tumblr, you can also find us sharing even more art/design/craft goodness at these special places:

It’s always exciting when an A-list celebrity signs on to a horror project. It’s with great enthusiasm that we learn Anne Hathaway is in talks to star in Colossal for Voltage Pictures.

Described as Godzilla meets Lost in Translation, the film is written and directed by genius Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Open Windows).

Hathaway will play Gloria, an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and her fiance, decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown.

But when news reports surface that a giant lizard is destroying the city of Tokyo, Gloria gradually comes to realize that she is strangely connected to these far-off events via the power of her mind. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) and Austin Stowell (Bridge of Spies) will play Anne’s romantic interests. Jason Sudeikis and Tim Blake Nelson are also on board with Nacho Vigalondo writing and directing.

The story follows a woman who moves back to her hometown after losing her job and boyfriend in New York, only to discover that she is somehow strangely connected to a giant creature that has materialized over Seoul and is wreaking havoc on the city.
