Jennifer Lawrence will arrive on Netflix soon. The star was chosen to star in "Don't Look Up", a comedy by director and screenwriter Adam McKay ("The Big Bet", "Vice") for the streaming platform, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The American will play half of a pair of scientists who discover that a gigantic meteor will hit the Earth in six months. However, when they leave alerting the world through the press, the two are met with disdain and disbelief.
Netflix beat other studios that were fighting over the project. McKay said that streaming distribution only raises his expectations for the film: "This is a world-class comedy."
Lawrence, for his part, is preparing his big return to the screens. Away from "Operation Red Sparrow" ("X-Men: Black Phoenix" was released later, but filmed much earlier), from 2018, she already has three projects triggered for the coming years.
In addition to "Don't Look Up", this will be in the untitled film by Lila Neugerbauer, director acclaimed in the theater, for distributor A24 (responsible for "Moonlight" and "Midsommar", among other titles).
Afterwards, Lawrence will also star in Paolo Sorrentino's "Mob Girl", about a mobster who becomes a police informant.
