“WeCrashed is based on the hit podcast “WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork.” It stars Academy, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Jared Leto and Academy, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Anne Hathaway, who will both also serve as executive producers.
“WeCrashed” will follow the greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable startups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible.
According to Deadline, Fagbenle will play Cameron Lautner, a partner at a powerful investment firm who is tasked with trying to instill discipline at WeWork and prepare it for its upcoming IPO, which brings him into conflict with the company’s eccentric and headstrong CEO.
Previously in development at Apple and set to be produced by Apple Studios, “WeCrashed” is created by Lee Eisenberg (Spirit Award-nominated “Little America,” “Good Boys”) and Drew Crevello (“The Long Dark”), and will be directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (“This is Us,” “Crazy Stupid Love”). Requa and Ficarra will executive produce alongside Charlie Gogolak. Eisenberg, Crevello and Natalie Sandy will also serve as executive producers. Emma Ludbrook will executive produce alongside Leto through their Paradox production company.
