Earlier this week, Collider reported that Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in an untitled new movie from the A24 and recognized theater director Lila Neugebauer ] who will make her function directly debut with the project. While plot information was originally kept under cover, Collider has now learned what the movie is about and should recap the Oscar-winning actress back in the award statement.
Written by First Writer Elizabeth Sanders the new movie will find Lawrence playing an American solidarity suffering from a traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan and struggling to get home. Oscar wins Scott Rudin and Eli Bush produces along with Lawrence and her Excellent Cadaver partner Justine Polsky . Production is expected to start in June in New Orleans.
At the same time, Collider has also learned that Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry keeps the offer star to Lawrence. Henry does not have an appointment yet, and the discussions are still super early, but he is the choice for what I understand to be the male leadership. Now I have not read the script and do not have the character interruption, but if I had to bet on a guess based on my knowledge of how movies work, I would assume that he either plays Lawrence's commander or his therapist of some sort back home. It all depends on how much time the movie uses Lawrence character on the battlefield.
Lawrence has been fascinated by the idea of making a war theme image for some time. At one point, she was linked to playing photojournalist Lynsey Addario who risked her life by entering war zones, in Steven Spielberg 's adaptation of her memoir That's what I do: A photographer's life for love and war . Interestingly, she chose this project, from a first-time filmmaker, no less as her first film after a self-imposed sabbatical that has lasted about half a year.
Lawrence was at the forefront of the underrated thriller Red Sparrow and she will soon be seen one last time as Mystique this summer Dark Phoenix . As a producer, she has worked with Adam McKay to develop Elizabeth Holmes film Bad Blood who would see her play the founder of the controversial Therano.  jennifer-lawrence-a24 movie "width =" 360 "height =" 195 "srcset =" http://cdn.collider.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/joy-jennifer-lawrence- 600×325.jpg 600w, http://cdn.collider.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/joy-jennifer-lawrence-500×271.jpg 500w, http://cdn.collider.com/wp-content/ uploads / 2015/08 / joy-jennifer-lawrence-900×487.jpg 900w "sizes =" (max-width: 360px) 100vw, 360px "/>
