Mother Mary marks the third collaboration between Lowery and A24 after 2017’s A Ghost Story and 2021’s The Green Knight. He also directed the 2016 Disney film Pete’s Dragon and the upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy.

The announcement follows a string of successes for A24 after the release of last year’s Everything Everywhere All at Once. The film, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, became the studio’s first movie to make over $100 million at the box office, and it went on to win seven Oscars, including Best Picture.

Hathaway sang during her Oscar-winning performance in the 2012 film Les Misérables. She also recently showed off her vocals while on The Kelly Clarkson Show in March 2022.
