What is it with Anne Hathaway and weddings? (And no, we’re not talking about the crooked long-term boyfriend she dumped last summer.) EW has learned that the 25-year old star, now on screen as the troublemaking sister of the bride in Rachel Getting Married, is attached to headline Warner Bros. The Fiance (17 Again‘s Burr Steers is attached to direct). In the lighthearted film, Hathaway would play a woman who calls off her wedding — only to find that her family feels so sorry for the jilted groom that they bring him into their lives anyway. Filming is supposed to begin in March. Hathaway will next appear opposite Kate Hudson in the upcoming Fox comedy Bride Wars (out Jan. 9), and last month it was announced that she will star in another Fox film, The Opposite of Love, as a woman with commitment issues who dumps her boyfriend right before he proposes.
