These days, it's hard to believe that Kate Hudson is a Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated actress. It's been years since she twirled as a band-aid, grabbing the hearts of William and Russell. Since then, she's surrounded herself with mainly romantic comedies -- some good, some bad -- and let her award-starting past slip away. All the way back in November of 2006, there was news of a new feature called Bride Wars. At the time, there was word that she had troubles getting the pic off the ground (she's one of the film's producers). She must've had more troubles to make it take this long, but all these months later, Variety reports that she finally has a director, Gary Winick, and has someone to star and war with -- Anne Hathaway.

Unlike Katherine Heigl's upcoming 27 Dresses, which is more about inner pain, this is about outwardly-warring brides, who are friends no less! Coming together from the pens of June Diane Raphael, Casey Wilson, Karen McCullah Lutz, and Kirsten Smith, "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." What is it about weddings that makes some women so crazy? I wonder if they'll end up in the hospital like that insane Grey's Anatomy episode where two women prioritized the perfect wedding over their health and safety?

So, will this help Hudson into better fare? Or be a crash and burn scenario for Hathaway? With Winick's involvement, I'm hoping for the former. He's responsible for the cute 13 Going on 30, and the great indie flick Tadpole. But this is all contingent on the project moving smoothly from here.
