A romantic comedy penned by noted genre enthusiast Mindy Kaling and Brent Forrester (The Office, The Ben Stiller Show) has found its special someone in Anne Hathaway. The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie is about a woman who's spent her life pursuing loserish men until, out of nowhere, she starts getting macked on by the hottest guy ever. THR writes Kaling will likely play a supporting role. We'll see, though — she's kind of a busy lady.
