Los Angeles: Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence will be taking up Adam McKay’s next directorial “Don’t Look Up”, a comedy set at Netflix. According to Variety, the film will start streaming later this year.
“Don’t Look Up” centers around two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn humankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy the planet.
McKay, who has written the film, said he is “thrilled” to collaborate with Lawrence.
“I’m so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She’s what folks in the 17th century used to call ‘a dynamite talent’.
“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,” the “Vice” director said.

Principal photography is expected to begin in April. Lawrence will also be seen in “Mob Girl”, which she is also producing.
