Anne Hathaway and Chloe Grace Moretz Sign onto Lynn Shelton's Laggies

When Women and Hollywood interviewed Lynn Shelton earlier in the year at Sundance, she mentioned her next project, Laggies, written by Andrea Seigel. Shelton described it about a twentysomething woman, who is passive in her life. When her longtime boyfriend proposes, she freaks out and hides out with her new best friend, a 16 year old girl.
