Anne Hathaway Updates: They play two entrepreneurs who have huge ideas but terrible planning. And on Wednesday morning, Anne Hathaway raced around New York City with Jared Leto dragging a huge whiteboard while shooting WeCrashed.

The 38-year-old actress looked smart in a black costume, with Leto following behind in business clothes, as they portrayed Rebekah and Adam Neumann, the creators of the billion-dollar failure co-working space, WeWork.

Anne wore black trousers, a silk top, and black leather shoes that matched her Yves Saint Laurent purse. While wheeling the board around, she shaded her eyes from the strong July light with a pair of large sunglasses. Leto, dressed in blue pants and a white shirt with a matching navy blazer, trailed closely behind to film the AppleTV+ limited series.

According to Variety, WeCrashed, based on the podcast of the same name, will expose the ‘greed-filled growth and ultimate demise of WeWork and the narcissists whose crazy love made it all possible.’ Along with their major roles, Anne and Jared will serve as executive producers alongside Lee Eisenberg, who will also serve as showrunner and co-writer.

WeWork had coworking spaces in more than 110 locations across 29 countries at its height, with a $47 billion value, and Rebekah was designated the company’s chief brand and impact officer, as well as directing WeWork’s education initiative WeGrow.

What Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto Shared?

At the time, Adam Neumann was compared to Steve Jobs as a Silicon Valley genius who would transform the world, but WeWork’s planned stock market floatation was delayed and investors turned on the firm, leading its worth to fall to only $10 billion. With his hard-partying tendencies, Neumann, who acted as CEO, effectively pushed the momentarily successful firm straight into the ground.

Reeves Wiedeman recounted ex-employees who said Neumann would play music at party settings and shout at anybody who requested for it to be turned down in his book, Billion Dollar Loser: The Epic Rise and Fall of WeWork.

He also allegedly requested that cases of Don Julio 1942 tequila be kept in every office and threatened to ‘lose his s***’ if they were not, and an employee said that he would arrange meetings at 2 a.m. and then be 45 minutes late. Neumann, 41, decided to quit the firm last October after SoftBank, the company’s Japanese backers, paid him $1 billion in shares to get him out.
