Adam McKay’s upcoming comedy film “Don’t Look Up” has been acquired by Netflix. The film will star Jennifer Lawrence and tells the story of two low-level astronomers, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy planet earth. Principal photography will begin in April with a 2020 release date scheduled.
I’m so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She’s what folks in the 17th century used to call “a dynamite act”. And the fact that Netflix sees this movie as a worldwide comedy sets the bar high for me and my team in an exciting and motivating way.
