Since she has already gone wild, it’s time for Anne Hathaway to get smart. The actress has signed on to star in the new big-screen version of the popular 1960s small-screen series Get Smart. Anne will play Agent 99 opposite Steve Carell‘s secret agent Maxwell Smart.
New Oscar winner Alan Arkin will play the chief of CONTROL, the organization that fights the evil forces of KAOS, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Terrence Stamp will also star. But enough about them — back to Anne. In the series, Agent 99 was the competent romantic foil to Maxwell Smart’s bumbling lead. And she got to wear an assortment of kicky trench coats and stylish costumes. I say, smart move.
