Jennifer Lawrence to Star in, Produce True-Life Mafia Story ‘Mob Girl’

‘The Young Pope’ filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino will direct the adaptation for Makeready.

Jennifer Lawrence and The Young Pope director Paolo Sorrentino are teaming on Mob Girl, a feature adaptation of a true-crime story for Makeready, the content studio founded by Brad Westson.

Lawrence will star in and also produce the adaptation of the book by Teresa Carpenter along with Justine Polsky via the duo’s banner, Excellent Cadaver, Makeready said Wednesday. Sorrentino and Lorenzo Mieli will also produce.

Angelina Burnett, a writer-producer who has worked on such shows as The Americans and Halt and Catch Fire, has been hired to pen the script.

Mob Girl centers on Arlyne Brickman, a woman who grew up among racketeers and mobsters on the Lower East Side of New York City. From dating the wise guys to then running errands for them, she became a “mob girlfriend” who then wanted a piece of the action herself. She eventually became a police informant and major witness in the government’s case against the Colombo crime family.

“Seeing this story from a woman’s point of view is a fresh and exciting approach to telling a classic mob story,” said Weston in a statement.

Makeready partner and head of film Pam Abdy and Natalie Williams will oversee for the studio.

Mob Girl marks the first project under the recently announced first-look film deal between Lawrence’s Excellent Cadaver and Makeready. Lawrence is currently shooting A24’s untitled soldier drama, which is being helmed by stage director turned first-time filmmaker Lila Neugebauer. Lawrence and Polsky are producing the feature along with Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.

Sorrentino and Miele produced The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law, for HBO. The duo are currently in production on the follow-up, The New Pope, with John Malkovich joining the Law-led cast. Both series were created and directed by Sorrentino.

Lawrence is repped by LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Sorrentino is repped by UTA. Burnett is repped by Manage-ment and Gang Tyre. ICM Partners repped the author in the book deal.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will reunite cast with potential newcomer Jessica Chastain

EW – 20th Century Fox’s X-Men maestro Simon Kinberg will make his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix, an adaptation of one of the property’s most iconic story lines. Kinberg’s film will also bring back much of the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Tye Sheridan. Bryan Singer, Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner will produce.

 

Jessica Chastain is also in talks to play the villain, reportedly an alien named Lilandra.

 

Dark Phoenix is an achievement years in the making for Kinberg. He wrote X-Men: The Last Stand, which attempted to tell the Jean Grey story; it wound up as a side story, angering the core fan audience. Kinberg told EW in 2015, “We ended up adding the cure plot into it so there were larger stakes and it included more of the X-Men. The Dark Phoenix story went from being the A-plot to the B-plot of the movie. What’s nice now is my hope is eventually we can tell that story again.”

 

It’s also a coup for Kinberg to reunite the cast, particularly Lawrence, who has been on the fence about returning to the franchise after three turns as shape-shifter Mystique.

 

Dark Phoenix will shoot in Montreal and is due in theaters Nov. 2, 2018.
