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.

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

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
