One of Jennifer’s upcoming projects includes Bad Blood. Directed by Adam McKay, Jennifer is to star as Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of a blood testing company Theranos. The co-writer of The Shape of Water, Oscar-nominated Vanessa Taylor, was hired to screenwrite the film! You can read the article below.

Legendary Entertainment has set Oscar-nominated The Shape of Water co-writer Vanessa Taylor to write Bad Blood, the eagerly awaited Silicon Valley scandal movie that Adam McKay will direct with Jennifer Lawrence starring as Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of the controversial blood testing company Theranos. Taylor is set just as the John Carreyrou book Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in Silicon Valley hits bookshelves on Monday.

McKay sees the film following closely in the footsteps of his Oscar-nominated The Big Short and the Dick Cheney movie that comes later this year with Christian Bale as the polarizing former vice president. McKay expected to write himself, but has been so engaged in the Cheney movie, that he wanted to get Bad Blood pumping so he can make it possibly as his next film.

Since he and Lawrence decided to team on the film, the woes of Theranos’ and Holmes have been playing out in real time. The film casts a skeptical eye on how innovative companies gain astronomical valuations, and sometimes prove too good to be true. Wall Street fell in love with the potential behind a potentially disruptive company, with Theranos heralded as a revolutionary service that could test blood with only a pinprick instead of the traditional method of drawing blood by injection. That potential left Theranos with a $9 billion valuation as recently as two years ago. The company has since come under investigation over claims of inaccurate testing and Holmes’ own worth — at one point valued at $4.5 billion for her 50% stake — plummeted along with the worth of the company.

The Securities and Exchange Commission sued Holmes and Theranos, accusing them of fraudulently raising more than $700 million from investors through false or exaggerated claims. In exchange for settling the charges, Holmes agreed to pay a $500,000 fine, return 18.9 million shares, relinquish her voting control of Theranos, and be barred from serving as an officer or director of a public company for ten years.

The film will be produced by Gary Sanchez’s McKay, Will Ferrell, Kevin Messick and Lawrence.

While Wall Street fled from Theranos, Hollywood flocked to the story of her downfall. Nine bids were on the table before Legendary won the project that included the participation of McKay and Lawrence, and the book proposal by John Carreyrou, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal writer who broke the story on Theranos for The Wall Street Journal in 2015. Carreyrou’s book is being published by Penguin Random House. For his work on Theranos, Carreyrou was awarded the George Polk Award for Financial Reporting, the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism and the Barlett & Steele Award for Investigative Journalism in 2016.

Aside from teaming with Guillermo del Toro on The Shape of Water script, Taylor has been co-executive producer of 20 episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and she is currently adapting the bestseller Hillbilly Elegy for Imagine, with Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s Ron Howard directing. Taylor is repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham.

20th Century Fox has pushed back the release date for X-Men: Dark Phoenix to Valentine’s Day of 2019 due to some reshoots required. You can read the article below.

Some curious news broke recently regarding two of 20th Century Fox’s upcoming superhero films. X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the next installment in the main X-Men franchise, and the horror-tinged spinoff The New Mutants have both had their release dates delayed, moving Dark Phoenix out of 2018 entirely and pushing New Mutants all the way back to next summer. Dark Phoenix is being pushed out of its initial November 2018 debut to February 14, 2019, so just a couple of months, but New Mutants is being delayed from February 2019 all the way to August 2, 2019. […]
Sources with knowledge of the situation tell us that Dark Phoenix had a test screening to see what was working and what wasn’t, and like most big budget films it needs some additional photography—this is standard procedure for blockbusters nowadays. But given the in-demand nature of this A-list cast, getting all the necessary cast members assembled for reshoots is no easy task. The earliest availability for everyone to return was August or September of this year, which would leave just a couple of months to complete necessary visual effects for the new scenes. That wasn’t enough time, and so Fox decided to push Dark Phoenix’s release date to February to give everyone the time necessary to complete the needed additional photography and post-production on said sequences. So the release date delay for this film is basically just an issue of scheduling.

In second is Fox’s Red Sparrow, an adaptation of the first novel in Jason Matthews’ trilogy starring Jennifer Lawrence and directed by Francis Lawrence. Debuting in 3,056 locations, the film brought in an estimated $17 million, which is in line with the studio’s expectations while a bit behind Mojo’s pre-weekend forecast. The film received a “B” CinemaScore and played to an opening weekend audience that was 53% female vs. 47% male and of 79% of its overall audience was over the age of 25.

Red Sparrow also brought in an estimated $26.5 million internationally this weekend. Leading the way was Taiwan with $2.4 million followed by Spain ($2m), Italy ($1.5m) and Hong Kong ($762K). Upcoming markets include Japan (Mar 30), France (Apr 4) and Russia (May 31).

Looking ahead, it’s tough to determine just how well this film will perform based on pre-weekend comparisons, which had us looking at Atomic Blonde and Ghost in the Shell, both of which debuted with over $18 million and, like Sparrow, received a “B” CinemaScore. Neither of those films, however, played to a majority female audience with Atomic’s 51% male audience being the closest while Ghost in the Shell joined Sparrow in playing to an older audience at 76% over the age of 25. Averaging the two films out would point toward a $45 million domestic run for Sparrow, which seems like a reasonable high-end at this point. Source

Happy Red Sparrow day! The film is officially in theatres as of today. An R-rated film directed by Francis Lawrence, also known as the director for the last three Hunger Games films, stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian spy recruited by the American government to work for them. In an action-packed film, the film has received mixed reviews from Rotten Tomatoes with 51% approval with the consensus set as “Red Sparrow’s tense, character-driven story — elevated by outstanding work from Jennifer Lawrence — help this topical spy thriller overcome its somewhat uneven narrative.”[1] It also stars Joel Edgerton, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Jeremy Irons, and Matthias Schoenaerts.

On Thursday, it earned 1.2$ million. BoxOfficeMojo predicts it will earn 19.3$ million in its release weekend:

Fox’s Red Sparrow brought in $1.2 million from Thursday night previews last night. While preview screenings don’t necessarily foreshadow a film’s overall weekend performance, this could be an early indication of an opening that falls below expectation as it is shy of both the $1.8 million Ghost in the Shell brought in before opening with $18.7 million and the $1.52 million for Atomic Blonde ahead of its $18.3 million debut. […] Looking at a second place finish is Fox’s Red Sparrow, which re-teams The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence and director Francis Lawrence in an R-rated adaptation of the first book in Jason Matthews’ trilogy of novels. Debuting in 3,056 theaters, Fox is anticipating a performance in the mid-to-high teens, and our analysis suggests an opening more on the higher end, if not possibly topping $20 million. Source

“I was terrified. I don’t think I have ever been so scared of doing a movie before in my life. Cool, so I’m really naked getting freezing cold water poured on me.” When it was all said and done, the Academy Award-winning actress felt that the nude scenes helped her overcome the insecurities spawned by the photo leak. “I feel like something that was taken from me I got back and am using in my art,” she [said]. “I mean it was empowering for me personally … I feel like I didn’t even really realize until I had finished that scene how much fear and insecurity and a complex of being judged had been following me for so many years,” Lawrence said. “I ended up thanking [director Francis Lawrence], which might sound crazy but also we’re talking about a world of deceit and corruption and abuse and abuse to women through the lens of a woman who regains her freedom through losing her intellect and I don’t think there is a better time for this movie than right now.” Source

Luca Guadagnino, currently drumming up Oscar buzz for the ravishing “Call Me by Your Name,” will direct Jennifer Lawrence in “Burial Rites,” Variety has learned. Lawrence will produce, as well as star in the true-crime drama. TriStar Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures, has worldwide rights to the picture.

The film draws on Hannah Kent’s 2013 novel of the same name, and centers on Agnes Magnusdottir (Lawrence), the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland in 1830. Agnes was sentenced to death for killing two men and setting fire to their home. The story takes place as Agnes awaits confirmation of her death sentence by the high court, a period of time that finds her reluctantly forging emotional and romantic bonds, while reflecting on her supposed crimes.

Allison Shearmur, an executive who oversaw development and production of “The Hunger Games” at Lionsgate, and Justine Ciarrocchi will produce with Lawrence. Shearmur most recently produced “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and is also producing the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Gary Ross and Jerry Kalajian will executive produce. At one point, it had looked like Ross would direct the film, potentially reuniting him with Lawrence, the star of “The Hunger Games.” An earlier iteration of the project had been set up at Lionsgate. TriStar president Hannah Minghella and Shary Shirazi, a creative executive, will oversee the production for TriStar Pictures. Source

“Third place went to Darren Aronofsky’s mother!, which not only opened with a supremely disappointing $7.5 million from 2,368 locations, but became one of only 19 films to ever receive an “F” CinemaScore suggesting a 60+% drop next weekend and a short-lived theatrical experience. The overall audience was 44% male vs. 56% female, of which 18% were under the age of 25. For star Jennifer Lawrence this is her worst wide debut ever, falling almost $5 million shy of her much-maligned September 2012 thriller House at the End of the Street, which debuted with $12.2 million despite an 11% rating on RottenTomatoes compared to the 68% rating for mother!

Internationally, mother! opened in 16 markets where it brought in an estimated $6 million including $1.3 million in France, $1.1 million in both the UK and Russia, $799k in Germany and $584k in Australia. Upcoming releases included Brazil (9/21), Mexico (9/22), Italy (9/28), Spain (9/29), Korea (10/19) and Japan (1/19).” Source

Passengers: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt are out of this world in exclusive first photos

Passengers — in theaters Dec. 21 — pairs Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt on a luxury intersteller spaceship bound for the Homestead II colony 120 years away. They’re two out of 5,000 souls traveling in suspended animation before they’re mistakenly awakened 90 years too early. Alone in outer space with a giant ship as their personal playground, they begin to fall in love just as it becomes apparent that the ship is malfunctioning and endangering its entire population.

Director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) chatted with EW about working with two of Hollywood’s biggest superstars and the challenges of making a big studio movie that also happens to be a character drama.

Jennifer Lawrence Boarding Adam McKay Theranos Medical Drama Project

EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Lawrence is attaching herself to Adam McKay’s drama about medical company Theranos and its 32-year-old founder Elizabeth Holmes. Theranos is the blood-testing startup that once had Silicon Valley investors salivating over its commercial potential with a $9 billion valuation as recently as two years ago.

McKay, who did an outstanding job making the financial crisis understandable and enjoyable in The Big Short, feels like the perfect filmmaker for this rise-and-fall cautionary tale for a company that once could boast of Henry Kissinger on its board of directors. In Lawrence, he may have found the perfect leading lady to embody Holmes, at one point the latest poster child for medical innovation and potential profitability. Forbes has now revised the estimated net worth of the company to $800 million taking into account the $724 million of capital raised. Holmes and her Theranos execs have vigorously denied claims that the company’s tests are unreliable and have made statements that they are cooperating with the relevant authorities to resolve the issues.

As would be expected for Hollywood’s most in-demand leading lady, Lawrence has a bunch of projects in the pipeline. She is set to star as Fidel Castro’s young lover in Marita, a pitch Sony has acquired from American Hustle scribe Eric Warren Singer. The Oscar winner will play Marita Lorenz – the real-life femme fatale who romanced Castro, was involved in a plot to assassinate him, and even observed a conspiracy to kill JFK. Lawrence also has an untitled film directed by Darren Aronofsky in the works with Scott Franklin and Ari Handel of Protozoa producing. Paramount will release the film, about a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

Lawrence also has Morten Tyldum’s Passengers in post opposite Chris Pratt. That pic follows a spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet transporting thousands of people which has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 60 years early. Early footage of the film is said to have wowed those in the audience.

McKay is a producer on Will Ferrell-Amy Poehler starrer The House, about a dad who convinces his friends to start an illegal casino in his basement after he and his wife spend their daughter’s college fund.

Mckay is repped by WME and Mosaic. Lawrence is repped by CAA.

This Week’s Cover: The Age of X-Men: Apocalypse

coverThe end is near. Over the course of six films, the X-Men have seen their share of intimidating opponents. But nothing has really prepared them (or audience members) for X-Men: Apocalypse, opening May 27 and the subject of four interconnected EW covers. The arrival of grumpy ancient mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) and his plan of worldwide destruction both rips apart and unites the X-Men, including young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Storm (Alexandra Shipp). “It’s kind of a conclusion of six films — X-Men 1, 2, 3, as well as First Class and Days of Future Past — and yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters,” says director Bryan Singer. “Even my father, who’s 85, called me and said, ‘Is this the last one?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s not going to be the last X-Men, I can promise you that, Dad.’ But it does have a kind of conclusive aspect to it.”

That feeling is compounded by the fact that the deals for the four leads — Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/Mystique), James McAvoy (Charles), Michael Fassbender (Erik/Magneto), and Nicholas Hoult (Hank/Beast) — expire with Apocalypse and no one is certain who, if anyone, will be returning for another round of mutant merriment. “Even if this is the last one for me or for other people, you just are sort of grateful for the experience,” McAvoy says. “I know I can speak for a lot of the other guys as well that it’s been a really positive experience for us professionally and socially and personally.” While the three men all say they are more than willing to come back, Lawrence is the holdout. And she vacillates a lot on this subject — even mid-sentence. “I would love to come back,” says Lawrence, who shot to superstardom after First Class, The Hunger Games, and her Oscar win for Silver Linings Playbook. She has many options, in other words, and they tug at her. “You realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is,” she says. “I don’t know.” Pause. “I shouldn’t be that honest.”

The producers thought long and hard about hiring the younger group of actors, knowing these faces will be the future of the franchise. “We needed those kids to be as compelling on screen as Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy and Oscar Isaac, and that’s a tall order,” says writer-producer Simon Kinberg. “We did feel a lot of pressure to find a young cast that can live up to that caliber of acting.” To that end, most of the newbies like Game of Thrones’ Turner, Sheridan — who has been hired as the lead in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One — and Shipp are signed to at least two more films.

Jennifer_Lawrence_-_Vanity_Fair_magazine_-_March__2015_003Last July 29, on a Patrick Demarchelier shoot at a private residence in the Hollywood Hills, a giant Colombian red-tailed boa constrictor spent most of the day cooped up in a perforated, extra-large storage container managed by two very capable handlers. When it came time for the snake to take his star turn, there was frightfully little between him and Jennifer Lawrence—only a long metal rod with a hook at the end. The actress proved to be very brave and nonchalant about having a serpent wrapped around her body—an homage to the 1981 Richard Avedon Vogue portrait of Nastassja Kinski that launched a million dorm-room posters—and coolly focused her eyes on the camera. “Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality, and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off,” says V.F. fashion and style director Jessica Diehl, who styled the shoot.

Lawrence only became uncomfortable when the snake took a fancy to her neck. Then the shoot was over and Mr. Boa went back into his box.
