Jared Leto & Anne Hathaway to Lead Apple's WeWork Show


Recommended Posts

Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway will headline Apple TV+'s upcoming WeWork series called WeCrashed. It's been 25 years since Leto last starred in a narrative TV series, shooting to stardom in his mid-20s with a role in the beloved ABC high school drama My So-Called Life. Hathaway, on the other hand, has worked in both film and TV over the last decade, a healthy mix that includes her Oscar-winning performance in Les Misérables and a role as a woman with bipolar disorder in Amazon's romantic anthology series Modern Love. Now, it looks like the two will join forces on a particularly timely story for Apple's rapidly growing streaming service.

THR reports that Leto and Hathaway will star in Apple's new miniseries titled WeCrashed, an eight-episode drama following the real-life story of Adam Neumann. The billionaire rockstar CEO of popular real estate startup WeWork became the center of 2019's most sensational business story when the company was found to have fraudulent business models, which Neumann exploited to enrich himself. Leto will play Neumann, while Hathaway will play his wife Rebekah Neumann. The series creators are Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello, whose credits include Little America and The Long Dark, with John Requa and Glenn Ficarra of This Is Us set to direct and executive produce.

 

This won't be the first show detailing Neumann and his controversial business dealings. In December 2019, it was announced that Succession star Nicholas Braun would play Neumann in a forthcoming series about WeWork's wild history. Leto's history of method acting and commitment to peculiar roles seems to make him the far more obvious choice to take on Neumann's larger-than-life personality. Still, audiences will have to wait and see how WeCrashed stands out amid Apple's other exciting, star-studded projects.
