Bad Blood – TBD – Announced
Even before Don’t Look Up, Jennifer Lawrence and Adam McKay were already slated to work together on a film detailing the founder of the controversial blood testing company Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes, called Bad Blood.
As Deadline reported all the way back in 2016, Lawrence and McKay were teaming up on the project, which drew heavy bidding from studios, ultimately landing with Legendary. However, as Deadline shared at the time, there was language in the contract that allows McKay and Lawrence – who are both also serving as producers – to take Bad Blood elsewhere “should it not move forward quickly.” Per IMDb, Legendary is still listed as one of the production companies.
But after five years with minimal movement on the project, and the duo of Lawrence and McKay tackling Don’t Look Up first, another Elizabeth Holmes project is likely to be the first one to screens.
The Dropout is a Hulu series that will focus on Holmes and Theranos, with Amanda Seyfried just recently being cast as Holmes, via Variety, replacing SNL’s Kate McKinnon.
