It looks as if we may have confirmation that Anne will be in the upcoming movie One Day. The Associated Press just released this short statement:
The star of Ella Enchanted and The Princess Diaries will appear in the film adaptation of David Nicholls’ popular novel One Day, about a working-class woman’s romance with a charming rich man, played by Jim Sturgess.
The movie begins filming this summer. It will be directed by Lone Scherfig, an Oscar nominee for An Education.
The project was announced Tuesday by Focus Features and Random House Films, which have a partnership.
I also found an article on upcoming films at hollywoodnews.com and they gave a little bit of info on the plot.
…which will open in the third quarter of 2011. It stars Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway in a film directed by An Education helmer Lone Scherfig.
