Ben Affleck, Toby Jones, Rosie Perez, Edi Gathegi, and Mel Rodriguez are all set to join Anne Hathaway and Willem Dafoe in “Mudbound” filmmaker Dee Rees’ next feature “The Last Thing He Wanted”.
Hathaway plays journalist Elena McMahon who finds herself on dangerous ground as the Iran Contra Affair’s arms for drugs plot reaches its tipping point. Rees and Marco Villalobos co-wrote the script based on Joan Didion’s 1996 novel of the same name.
Cassian Elwes is producing and filming is currently underway in Puerto Rico. Netflix will release the film exclusively on its service next year.
