Jennifer Lawrence and Adam McKay Will Team For Corporate Drama
Adam McKay and Jennifer Lawrence both made movies about big business last year. Lawrence starred in Joy for David O. Russell, a biopic about entrepreneur and Miracle Mop innovator Joy Mangano, who rose from humble beginnings to the top of a home improvement empire. McKay’s movie, his first break from surrealistic comedy, was The Big Short, adapted from the Michael Lewis book, about the men who accurately predicted (and wildly profited from) the 2008 economic collapse. In the heated atmosphere of awards season, McKay and Lawrence found themselves as competitors for prizes and box office. Now they’ll team up to make something together about what is seemingly a common interest in the American economy.
