Rialto Chatter: Anne Hathaway and Kit Harington In Talks For New Hollywood Play DOUBLE FEATURE

Academy Award-winner Anne Hathaway and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington are in "very early discussions" to star opposite one another in Double Feature, a new play from John Logan (Red).

The play aims to hit Broadway in 2021, with hopes for a West End production to follow. There is no confirmation on either run or official casting at this time.

The new work will feature two plays in one. The first will touch on the controversial and abusive working relationship between director Alfred Hitchcock and actress Tippi Hedren.

Hathaway is currently in talks to portray Hedren. It is speculated that Harington's fellow Game of Thrones alumna, Conleth Hill, could portray Hitchcock.

The second play would feature Harington and tells the story of a young man who meets his idol, horror auteur, Vincent Price.

Anne Hathaway won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables. Her other stage roles include Grounded (Public Theater) and Twelfth Night (Shakespeare in the Park).

Harrington played Jon Snow on HBO's "Game of Thrones," a global phenomenon that aired eight seasons over the past eight years. He was nominated for two Emmys for his performance as the resurrected hero of the Night's Watch. He got his start in the West End production of "War Horse."
