According to Deadline, Warner Bros has bought the film rights of Live Fast Die Hot by Jenny Mollen while Anne Hathaway has been tapped out to play the lead. It’s also been said Hathaway along with Gail Berman are set to produce the adaptation. You can read the full details below.
Mollen wrote about a transformation of her priorities as she evolved from a social-media-centric and impulsive personality — who once invited her drug dealer to Passover Seder so he wouldn’t feel like they were only using him for drugs — to a first-time mother. The irreverent self-discovery essays in the book make her a kindred spirit to the likes of Chelsea Handler and Lena Dunham, both of whom lent laudatory blurbs when the book was published. The project will be overseen by WB’s Chantal Nong, and it is part of a concerted effort by Greg Silverman’s feature division to recruit female filmmakers and talent to tell stories.
