Willem Dafoe has been roped in to star in crime drama "The Last Thing He Wanted".
The 62-year-old actor will play father to Anne Hathaway's hardscrabble journalist Elena McMahon, who gets embroiled in the dangerous world of arms dealing.
The film is the big-screen adaptation of Joan Didion's 1996 political thriller, which will be directed by "Mudbound" helmer Dee Rees.
Marco Villalobos will co-write the script with Rees.
Elevated's Cassian Elwes will produce and The Fyzz Facility's Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones will produce and finance the project.
