Hathaway would portray 'Megan' described as a "perpetual adolescent and late-twentysomething who, freaked out by her boyfriend's marriage proposal, pretends to go on a career retreat but actually hides out for a week with 16-year-old Annika (Moretz), her new best friend."
Mark Webber is in talks to take on the role of Megan's boyfriend while Rockwell will play an older character named Craig. The film was penned by Andrea Seigel. Steve Golin, Alix Madigan and Rosalie Swedlin are producing for Anonymous Content.
