ADAM MCKAY COMEDY "DON'T LOOK UP", STARRING JENNIFER LAWRENCE LANDS AT NETFLIX

Netflix has acquired Adam McKay's hotly anticipated comedy DON'T LOOK UP with Jennifer Lawrence set to star. DON'T LOOK UP 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.

McKay who has written the script will direct and produce under his Hyperobject Industries banner with Kevin Messick. McKay's most recent feature VICE went on to receive eight Academy Award nominations. In 2016, McKay won the Academy Award, BAFTA and WGA for Best Adapted Screenplay with his co-writer Charles Randolph for THE BIG SHORT.

Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook." She has been nominated for three additional Oscars for "Joy," "American Hustle" and "Winter's Bone." She recently wrapped production on acclaimed theater director Lila Neugebauer's Untitled film for A24 and Scott Rudin Productions in which she stars and produced alongside Justine Polsky under their production banner, Excellent Cadaver. Following "Don't Look Up", she will star in and produce "Mob Girl" to be directed by Paolo Sorrentino for Universal Pictures through Excellent Cadaver's first-look film deal and partnership with Makeready.

McKay says: "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."

Scott Stuber, head of Netflix films says: "Adam has always had great timing when it comes to making smart, relevant and irreverent films that depict our culture. Even if he somehow ends up predicting planet Earth's imminent demise, we're excited to add this to our slate before it all comes to an end."

Principal photography will commence on DON'T LOOK UP in April. Netflix will release the film later this year.

ABOUT HYPEROBJECT INDUSTRIES

Hyperobject Industries is a multi-platform production company from Academy-Award winning writer-director-producer Adam McKay. The company's name is a shout-out to environmental philosopher Timothy Morton's use of the term 'hyperobject' and his belief that humankind needs to re-evaluate its relationship with nature as a whole. The team includes McKay's longtime producer Kevin Messick and producers Betsy Koch and Todd Schulman. Hyperobject Industries' focus is wide ranging from comedies, dramas, horror, documentaries and documentaries-series as well as politically charged and challenging subjects with which McKay has become synonymous. Hyperobject Industries has also teamed with Adam Davidson, Laura Mayer and Sony Music Entertainment's Three Uncanny Four Productions to develop original podcasts with an initial slate of shows scheduled to launch in 2020.

Television projects include the previously announced HBO limited series, chronicling the 1980s Los Angeles Lakers and a limited series based on Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie K. Brown's upcoming book about Jeffrey Epstein. McKay and Bong Joon Ho are partnering to develop an HBO limited series inspired by Bong Joon Ho's Academy Award Best Picture Parasite. McKay and Messick continue to serve as Executive Producers on HBO's critically acclaimed and Golden Globe-winning series Succession, which will head into production this year for its third season.
