Everyone’s favorite actress to hate – Anne Hathaway – is working on a new movie for which she also serves as producer. The flick is called Song One, and it’s been filming scenes on the Lower East Side the last few days. Back on Friday afternoon, production was centered at Home Sweet Home at 131 Chrystie Street; the shoot continues today in the same vicinity, and on up the east side of Bowery above of Delancey.

Song One is a romantic drama that focuses on an archaeologist (Hathaway) who returns from a dig to find her brother in a coma. In the aftermath, she falls for her brother’s favorite rock star, played by Johnny Flynn.

Fans of Jenny Lewis will be happy to learn that the she and boyfriend-collaborator Johnathan Rice are scoring Song One. Moreover, the lovebirds are expected to contribute some original songs alongside simple soundtrack. The collaboration marks the first between Lewis and Rice since I’m Having Fun.
