Jennifer Lawrence to head R-rated comedy No Hard Feelings

hollywood star Jennifer lawrence teamed up with Gene Stupnitsky for an R-rated comedy film. The film, titled No Hard Feelings, is described as a coming-of-age drama. It was taken over by Sony Photos, reported Variety.

Stupnitsky, best known for his stints as screenwriter and co-executive producer on NBC’s The Office as well as his directorial debut Good Boys, will direct the film from a screenplay he will write with Joan Phillips.

No Hard Feelings is located in Montauk, NY, a hamlet on the eastern end of Long Island.

The project is billed as an R-rated comedy in the vein of Tom cruisethe 1983 film Risky Business and Cameron Diaz-starrer Bad Teacher, on which Stupnitsky was executive producer and screenwriter.

Sony Pictures should have faced competition from other major studios and streaming services in pursuing the project.

Universal Pictures, the studio that backed Stupnitsky’s Good Boys, was also in the fray, but Sony ultimately came out on top.

The studio now plans to offer the film an exclusive theatrical release.

No Hard Feelings will be produced by Alex Saks, Marc Provissiero, Naomi Odenkirk, Lawrence and Justine Polsky.

Lawrence has a pre-filled roster when she is slated to star in Netflix’s Don’t Look Up, directed by Adam McKay. She will also team up with filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino for Mob Girl.

Along with McKay, the Oscar-winning star has another project, titled Bad Blood, in which she will play Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.
