Jennifer Lawrence Returns From Year-Long Acting Hiatus With Secret A24 Movie

Jennifer Lawrence Returns From Year-Long Acting Hiatus With Secret A24 Movie
Jennifer Lawrence is officially returning to the big screen and, in a surprise move, has decided to end her year-long acting hiatus not with a major Hollywood studio but by returning to her indie roots. The Oscar winner is set to star in a secret new film from A24 and Iac Films. The project is being set up as the feature filmmaking debut of Lila Neugebauer, an acclaimed theater director who most recently revived Kenneth Lonergan’s “The Waverly Gallery” on Broadway. The production starred Elaine May and Lucas Hedges and was produced by Eli Bush and Scott Rudin, both of whom will produce the Lawrence movie.

Getting a massive international star like Lawrence is a huge gain for A24. The studio is releasing buzzy Sundance titles “The Farewell,” “The Souvenir,” and “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” in theaters this summer, plus Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” follow-up “Midsommar.

Oscar’s Longest Losing Streaks: 12 People With 10-Plus Nominations and No Wins (Photos)
Cinematographer Roger Deakins hopes to snap his losing streak this year with his 14th nomination, for “Blade Runner 2049.”

Greg P. Russell (16 nominations)

Veteran sound mixer Greg P. Russell earned his first nomination for 1989’s “Black Rain.” He almost earned a 17th nomination, for 2016’s “13 Hours,” but his nomination was rescinded after he “violated Academy campaign regulations that prohibit telephone lobbying.”

Roland Anderson (15)

The longtime art director picked up his first nomination for “A Farewell to Arms” in 1934 — and then lost for such classics as 1961’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and 1963’s “Come Blow Your Horn.”

Alex North (15)

Composer Alex North was recognized with an honorary Oscar in 1986 — but he never won despite scoring such classics as “A Streetcar Named Desire,” “Cleopatra” and “Spartacus.”

Roger Deakins (14)

Cinematographer Roger Deakins earned the first of 14 nominations for 1994’s “The Shawshank Redemption” — and even earned two nods in 2007 for Best Picture winner
