Anne Hathaway is going to be pursued by the hottest guy ever in ‘The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie,’ a romantic comedy co-scripted by breakout ‘Office‘ writer-actress Mindy Kaling. Is it really such a stretch to believe, though? This is Catwoman, we’re talking about!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on “a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.”

Kaling, who is ¬†producing as well, will likely take on a supporting role (let’s guess: “the best friend”?). The screenplay (co-written by ‘The Office’ producer Brent Forrester) was on the 2009′s Hollywood Blacklist, and has been in various stages of development ever since.¬†John Malkovich‘s Mr. Mudd Productions will also produce the film, alongside Good Universe. Perhaps Malkovich will find himself a role in the flick? (Maybe even as the “hottest guy ever”?!)

The project is still seeking a director; Hathaway, meanwhile, is reportedly attached to Steven Spielberg‘s ‘Robopocalypse,’ which is currently in pre-production and would likely go in front of cameras before ‘Lizzie Gillespie.’
