Hathaway hops on ‘War’ path

'Prada' actress to co-star with Hudson in comedy

Anne Hathaway has been set to star with Kate Hudson in “Bride Wars,” and Gary Winick has signed to direct the romantic comedy for New Regency.

Hathaway and Hudson will play best friends who are pitted against each other when their wedding dates clash. They compete for venues, services and guests, once it’s clear that neither will step aside.

Hudson is producing with Julie Yorn and Alan Riche. Twentieth Century Fox will distribute.

Production will begin early next year, and the shooting script was completed pre-strike by June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson. Karen McCullah Lutz & Kirsten Smith also wrote on the project.

Hathaway recently completed the role of Agent 99 in “Get Smart,” opposite Steve Carell for Warner Bros.
