Jennifer Lawrence to star in Adam McKay comedy for Netflix

NEW YORK (AP) – Jennifer Lawrence will star in the Adam McKay comedy “Don’t Look Up” for Netflix.

The streaming giant on Wednesday announced that it acquired the the project.

McKay, who wrote the script, will direct the film about two low-level astronomers who go on a media tour to warn of an approaching asteroid heading for Earth.

Lawrence has been little seen on the big screen lately, most recently co-starring in last year’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.”

The 29-year-old actress took a roughly two-year hiatus from acting but has recently returned to work.

Shooting on “Don’t Look Up” is set to begin in April.
