Anne Hathaway, who back in 2010 appeared in a romantic comedy and a romantic dramedy, is getting back in the game. She’s reportedly attached to a film written by Mindy Kaling, who has written for The New Yorker about her love for the genre before making it the organizing principle behind TV’s Mindy Project.

The script, The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, is about a woman who doesn’t realize she’s beautiful enough to land a hot date. Hard to imagine the recently married actress (who may very well have an Oscar for Les Miserables on the shelf by early 2013) playing ugly, but she frizzed up her hair in The Devil Wears Prada and The Princess Diaries back in the day!
