Netflix is re-teaming with Academy Award nominee Dee Rees (Mudbound) for her next film “The Last Thing He Wanted” starring Academy Award Winner Anne Hathaway.
The film is written by Marco Villalobos and Dee Rees based on Joan Didion’s book of the same title.
The story is based on the 1996 novel by Joan Didion and centers on hardscrabble journalist Elena McMahon who finds herself on dangerous ground as the Iran Contra Affair’s arms for drugs plot reaches its tipping point.
Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film group commented: “Dee Rees is an incredibly talented filmmaker, who continues to make provocative and entertaining films. We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Dee and proud to have her part of the Netflix family.”
