Anne Hathaway Teases New HBO Max Film ‘Lockdown’ With Chiwetel Ejiofor

Anne Hathaway posted a picture with a smiling Chiwetel Ejiofor to promote their new film Lockdown, while also hinting at some major plot details. 

The caption included several things fans are paying attention to; the first is her shoutout to Doug Liman, Steven Knight, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, with who she made the film.

The second important detail in her post is that the film will be available for streaming in January on HBO Max. It is one of the few films created during the pandemic with events set in the current times. Jessica Chastain commented on the post with, “Already?! You just finished it. Can’t wait to see it xx.”

Lastly and most importantly, the final sentence in Hathaway’s post states, “In the meantime, here’s a snap of me and Chiwetel in Harrod’s at four AM just before we attempt to steal a diamond worth 3 million pounds (as you do in 2020.)” With the film being set in England, it’s fitting for the heist to occur at Harrods, which sells anything from home furniture and clothing to fine jewelry and private jets.

While this isn’t Hathaway’s first rodeo in a heist film, it’s certainly one fans are looking forward to; thankfully, it’s only a month away.
