Story by Jack Foley

ANNE Hathaway is to star in the new thriller The Last Thing He Wanted from Mudbound director Dee Rees.

Adapted from Joan Didion’s best-selling 1996 political thriller, the film follows a Washington Post journalist who is unexpectedly thrown into the dangerous world of arms dealing.

Marco Villalobos, who worked with Rees on the critically-acclaimed and award-winning Mudbound, has adapted the book, which was acquired in 2016.

Rees’ other credits include the indie hit Pariah and the Emmy-winning HBO film Bessie.

Hathaway, whose credits include The Devil Wears Prada and Les Miserables (for which she won an Oscar), was most recently seen in last year’s titles Colossal and Alice Through The Looking Glass.

She also has Ocean’s 8, The Hustle and Serenity in post-production.
