While all of the attention has gone to socially conscious Oscar front-runners like Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out, Anne Hathaway and Dee Rees both quietly delivered two of the most powerful movies of 2017. Hathaway starred in the clever Colossal, whose themes of domestic violence elevated its quirky sci-fi underpinnings, while Rees directed the racially-charged period drama Mudbound. Now, the two of them will be teaming up for their next project.
Hathaway will be starring in The Last Thing He Wanted, an adaptation of a Joan Didion political thriller directed by Rees.
