Illustration for article titled Anne Hathaway Dons Super Cape For Stephen Chow Comedy?

Even though Stephen Chow passed on the Green Hornet picture with Seth Rogen, he's not done playing with the super-genre. In fact, rumor has it he's cast Anne Hathaway in a new superhero comedy.

According to Wei Dasen (reporting in China.org.cn) Chow's company has its sites set on a CG-heavy, explosion-packed comedy. Chow mentioned before that he wanted to work with funnyman Jack Black on his next project, and Hathaway is known for tackling big-budget comedy features in between her indie projects, so the timing seems right. But what kind of superhero would Hathaway be? My guess: a by-the-book action star who needs loosening up... enter Jack Black. Hopefully it'll be a bit more creative than that, but probably not. Chow is currently writing the screenplay and will also co-star.
