Jennifer Lawrence to Star in Untitled A24 Drama

The Hollywood Reporter  In-demand New York stage director Lila Neugebauer will make her feature debut on the project from first-time screenwriter Elizabeth Sanders, produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush. Jennifer Lawrence has locked in her first new project since announcing she was taking a breather a year ago. While details are being kept under wraps, the film looks to be something of a return to the Oscar winner’s indie-scale roots with her breakout vehicle Winter’s Bone. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing through their IAC Films division and its partnership with A24, with Lawrence and Justine Polsky also on the producing team through their newly formed company Excellent Cadaver. Lawrence’s return to the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix, opens June 7 from Fox. The untitled new film project, written by first-time screenwriter Elizabeth Sanders, will mark the feature debut of Lila Neugebauer, who has quickly ascended in the past few years to become one of the most exciting young New York stage directors. Principal photography will start mid-June in New Orleans. “It’s an intimate film that wants to be close to the bone and wants to be quite personal,” says Neugebauer, who has gained a reputation for the subtlety of her productions, with their ultra-naturalistic flow and seamless ensemble work. Regarding her transition into film, Neugebauer tells The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s something that I’ve hoped to do and has been in the back of my mind for some time now. I directed my first episode of television last spring, on the Duplass Brothers’ HBO show Room 104. That was a really lovely opportunity to get behind the camera, because the throughline of that anthology show is that they’re all set in the same hotel room, so in a way, they’re sort of all one-act plays. It was a very natural fit.” Neugebauer’s acclaimed off-Broadway productions have included Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves, which was produced in association with Rudin, Annie Baker’s The Antipodes, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody, Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo and Tracy Letts’ Mary Page Marlowe. She made her Broadway debut this season on the Rudin- and Bush-produced revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s The Waverly Gallery, which starred Elaine May, Lucas Hedges, Joan Allen and Michael Cera. “Scott very wonderfully thought of me for this project, and sent me the script a couple months ago,” continues Neugebauer. “It is a first, but I feel really gratified that I think it’s the right first project for me in the film world. And thus far Jen has been a really astonishing partner as well. It was very clear to me very quickly that we have a deep shared understanding of the project and she’s a really collaborative spirit, so I’m looking forward to having this opportunity to merge minds with her.” The Lawrence feature marks the second new project announced in the past few weeks from IAC and A24, which teamed previously on Lady Bird, Eighth Grade, Mid90s and Ex Machina. The companies also are working on a film adaptation of Stephen Karam’s 2016 Tony Award winner for best play, The Humans, which was produced by Rudin on Broadway. Karam will adapt and direct the film, set to star Beanie Feldstein, Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun and Jayne Houdyshell, reprising her Tony-winning role. Also in the pipeline from Rudin and Bush is Kelly Reichardt’s First Cow; Joel Coen’s Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand; and the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems, with Adam Sandler and LaKeith Stanfield, which pundits are eyeing for a fall festival premiere.

Dark Phoenix : Official Trailer

20th Century Fox debuted a second trailer for the long-awaited next (and presumably final) installment its X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix. Directed by Simon Kinberg, the film reunites James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, and others to adapt the Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. The story is one of the best-known from the X-Men comics franchise, in which mutant Jean Grey is exposed to radiation, which boost her powers. We see a bit of this in the trailer: the X-Men head to space and are hit by a “mysterious cosmic force.” Jean vanishes and reappears on Earth, and we see her speaking with someone (played by Jessica Chastain), who tells her that “if you stop fighting that force inside you, if you embrace it, we will possess the very power of a god.” That spells trouble for the rest of the X-Men, who have to find a way to contain that power and save their friend. The film is the sequel to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, The Dark Phoenix storyline was originally covered in Brett Ratner’s 2006 film X-Men: Last Stand, but when the franchise’s timeline was reset with 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fox had an opportunity to give the story another chance. The studio released its first trailer last fall, showing off the danger that Jean Grey’s powers pose to the world, and the complicity that Professor Xavier (played by McAvoy) has in her formation. X-Men: Dark Phoenix arrives on June 7th, 2019. Check out the photos below. Gallery Links: – Movies > X-Men: Dark Phoenix – 2018 > Official Trailer

Jennifer Lawrence gets political in short documentary where she talks about ‘the total political system failure in America’

Jennifer Lawrence is the star of a new documentary about corruption in the American political system. The film is called ‘Unbreaking America: A NEW Short Film about Solving the Corruption Crisis,‘ and lasts just over 12 minutes. The film is by Represent.Us, an anti-corruption group, which seeks to bridge the political divide, creating anti-corruption laws that ‘stop political bribery’ and ‘fix broken elections The actress is a board member for the organization and at one point in the film co-founder of Represent.Us, Josh Silver, makes an appearance.   Against a backdrop of bright graphics, Lawrence talks about flaws in politics and makes it clear that she isn’t talking ‘about Democrats and Republicans.’ ‘I’m talking about the flaws that exist in our politics system regardless of which party is in power,‘ Lawrence says. ‘…look, the government is ours. We pay for it, so it needs to work for us, and right now, it doesn’t,‘ she adds. Lawrence highlights one of her concerns, if an issue has 0 percent support or 100 percent support, there’s only a 30 percent chance that Congress will take action on it, she says, because lobbying interests dictate policy. Lawrence asks, ‘how do we unrig this system?‘ ‘I’m obsessed with this idea, not just of unrigging it but actually fixing it,’ she continues. She talks about changing things on the local level, ending gerrymandered voting districts, mandating transparent political spending and overhauling lobbying laws. All of the suggested reforms are put in a ‘model law’ called the American Anti-Corruption Act. Silver adds that politicians win in the current system so for change to occur they need to go ‘around’ Congress with cities and states all across America passing anti-corruption acts. They present the argument that if laws are changed at the local and state level then federal officials will have almost no choice but to enact laws that would reduce the influence of money in American politics and policy. On its website, Represent.Us says it needs 11 million people to watch the film. Watch: Check out the photos below. Gallery Links: – Other Projects > RepresentUs > 2019: Unbreaking America
