laggies Newly minted Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, Chloe Moretz, Mark Webber and Sam Rockwell are all in negotiations to join “Your Sister’s Sister” director Lynn Shelton’s next film, “Laggies”, according to Deadline.

The long-gestating project will see Hathaway as Megan, a perpetually immature 28 year old, who responds to her boyfriend’s (Webber) marriage proposal with a major freakout. Telling everyone she’s going on a work-related trip, she instead spends a week hanging out with her new best friend, Moretz’s 16 year old high school student. Paul Rudd had at one point been attached to the film, but it’s likely he’s been replaced by Rockwell, who plays an older character named Craig. No word on when filming begins.

Hathaway, after having previously been nominated for “Rachel Getting Married”, won her first Academy Award for her role as Fantine in “Les Miserables” just a month ago. Moretz recently wrapped up reprising her role as Hit Girl in “Kick Ass 2” and will next be seen in Kimberly Pierce’s “Carrie” remake. Webber, a rising figure on the indie scene appeared in three Sundance films last year year, sex hotline comedy “For a Good Time, Call…” with Ari Graynor, “Save the Date” with Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan and his own “The End of Love”, which he wrote, directed and produced, as well as starred in.
