Brokeback Mountain: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Anne Hathaway and Randy Quaid are joining Ang Lee's cowboy love story Brokeback Mountain for Focus Features. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal are starring.
Adapted by McMurtry and Ossana from a short story by "The Shipping News" author E. Annie Proulx, the story centers on two men (Ledger and Gyllenhaal) who meet one summer as sheepherders in Wyoming and form a bond and love that spans 20 years. Hathaway plays the strong-willed ex-rodeo queen wife of Gyllenhaal's character, while Quaid will play the hard-bitten foreman who employs the two cowboys.
Michelle Williams has already been cast as the wife of Ledger's character. Hathaway gained attention for starring in The Princess Diaries. She next stars in Ella Enchanted, followed by The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.
