wecrashed anne hathaway

The WeCrashed TV adaptation just got itself a series order from Apple TV+. The show is based on the podcast of the same name which chronicled the rise and fall of WeWork, a commercial real estate company once valued at $47 billion dollars until it all came crashing down due to mismanagement and a general lack of vision. The idea itself was simple – basically an Airbnb for office space. But mismanagement lead to ruin. It was previously announced that Jared Leto had been cast in the show as CEO Adam Neumann, and now Anne Hathaway has also come on board as Neumann’s wife and WeWork co-founder Rebekah Newmann.

Unearthed

Doug Liman resists paths of convention. The director, who’s always prided himself as a rule-breaker, typically doesn’t follow trends but establishes them. Look at The Bourne IdentitySwingers, and even Mr. & Mrs. Smith – other movies have tried to copy their success. Once again, Liman ventured into uncharted territory with Locked Down.

Liman shot the heist movie, which is more of a relationship drama, during the ongoing lockdown in London. There is a third act heist involving the garish Harrods department store, but it’s not the main focus of the HBO Max release. The first 90 minutes of Locked Down are a suitably, dizzyingly claustrophobic experience that depicts a couple crumbling during the pandemic.

It was only months ago when Liman started shooting the Steven Knight-written movie, which was quickly filmed, edited, and sold to HBO Max. As Liman stated, the surreal experience began when he flew his “little prop plane” over the Atlantic on a two-day journey to London.

Locked Down Trailer

We’re still squarely in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped filmmakers and television creators from digging into the timely and relevant drama brought about by the global disaster. HBO Max is the latest to enter the fray.

Though we’ve been dreading the influx of indie dramas and comedies set in the age of coronavirus, Locked Down from Mr. and Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman actually doesn’t look half-bad. That’s mostly because, even though it’s set up as a struggling quarantined relationship dramedy between Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor, it’s actually a heist movie. Watch the Locked Down trailer to see what we’re dealing with. Read More »

lockdown

It’s happening: we’ve arrived in the era of pandemic-themed movies, and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is far from over. And I’m not convinced that it will be over by the time Doug Liman‘s pandemic heist movie, Lockdown, is released, whenever that is. But Hollywood is getting ready to mine the pandemic for all its storytelling potential, with Liman set to direct Lockdown, penned by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and set to star Anne Hathaway.
