Anne Hathaway to Star In "The Taming Of The Shrew" By William Shakespeare

There are rumors circulating that Anne Hathaway is about to take on Shakespeare!

Hathaway is set to star in a new modern film adaptation of "The Taming of the Shrew".

In detail, Hathaway would portray the title character Katherine, the sharp-tongued daughter of a wealthy townsman.

According to The Wrap, the script is being penned by Shame and The Iron Lady screenwriter Abi Morgan.

Needless to say that Shakespeare's 16th century Italian play has been adapted before in Hollywood - the most notable version was Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's 1967 movie.

It has to be noted that Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger's "10 Things I Hate About You is also loosely based on the play".

What do you think of Anne Hathaway portraying
the title character Katherine in "The Taming of the Shrew"?
