The family comedy will start shooting in February 2009.
Chadha bills the project as My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Shaun Of The Dead. The film is set in multi-cultural London, where a mother's comic obsession to marry-off her daughter leads to murder.
Chadha writes and produces with her husband Paul Berges. Chris Curling of Zephyr Films executive produces.
Hanway CEO Tim Haslam said: 'Gurinder's exceptional body of work includes the distinctive Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice, and Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging - commercial feel-good multi-generational films - loved by under 18s and over 45s alike.'
HanWay's current slate also includes Jon Ameils' Darwin drama Creation starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly; Michael Caine-starring Harry Brown and Scott Hicks' Clive Owen-starring The Boys Are Back In Town, previously handled by Capitol Films.
