After the complete failure of box office and critical X-Men: Dark Phoenix Simon Kinberg, the actress Jennifer Lawrence took a brief pause in his prolific career, which seems to have ended: the actress will star in the new film by writer, director, comedian and american actor Adam McKay, a comedy titled Don’t Look Upand , according to the first information, will debut at the end of the year on Netflix.
The project comes immediately after the actress completed the production of a film, still untitled, directed by Lila Neugebauer for the production company A24. The who in addition to starring, also produced.
The film of Netflix, whose script is also run by McKay, follows the adventures of two astronomers of the second category are shipped in a unpredictable tour media with the purpose of warning the public that an asteroid is approaching and will destroy the Earth.
Of course, the story will be seasoned with the strange humor of the McKay, known for his frequent collaborations with Will Ferrell, with whom he co-wrote films such as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and The Other Guys.
The director declared to be very excited about his collaboration with Lawrence, who according to his own words he admires for a long time and considered “a talent of dynamite”. In addition, according to his own words, the opportunity of working with Netflix is also a whole new dimension of his work until now. “The fact that Netflix, see this movie as a comedy world sets the bar high for me and my team in ways that are exciting and motivating,” he said to summarize their expectations about the project. There are still no statements of Lawrence about the upcoming film, which will continue to be Mob Girl from Universal, directed by Paolo Sorrentino.
Netflix seems to be in a hurry to crystallize the project of MacKay and according to sources in the channel, the production will begin in April.
Scott Acropora, director of Netflix Films, emphasised that the future film is a priority for the channel, and praised the talent of McKay to create what he called “movies smart, relevant and irreverent that represent our culture. Even if it somehow ends up predicting the imminent demise of planet Earth, we’re very excited to add this to our list before it all comes to an end”.
McKay has had considerable successes of criticism during the past few years: his film Vice starring an unrecognizable Christian Bale received in the 2018 eight nominations to the Oscar awards of the Academy. Known for his vision, cynical and twisted about the world and their small mishaps, it is expected that his movie on Netflix is a satire that sums up not only the tense political climate, social and cultural development of the last decade, but also, the repeated threats of an imminent Apocalypse have captivated the attention of pop culture and mass for several years.
