Jennifer Lawrence Drops Out Of New Movie Bad Blood

Jennifer Lawrence

After taking a break from acting for a few years because she felt she wasn’t “pumping out the quality” she should have (with X-Men: Dark Phoenix factoring into that belief), Jennifer Lawrence returned to cinematic territory last year with Don’t Look Up, which is streamable with a Netflix subscription. Nearly a year later, Apple TV+ subscribers will soon be able to watch Lawrence in  the psychological drama Causeway, and that will be followed next year by No Hard Feelings. However, the upcoming movie Bad Blood is no longer on the horizon for the actress, and Lawrence explained why she dropped out of playing Elizabeth Holmes.

Back in 2016, it was announced that Jennifer McKay and writer/director Adam McKay were teaming together for Bad Blood, which is based on the same-named 2018 book about Elizabeth Holmes, the disgraced CEO of the health technology company Theranos. Since then, Hulu subscribers have seen Amanda Seyfried play Holmes in the limited series The Dropout, and Lawrence revealed that Seyfried’s performance is the reason why she’s no longer doing Bad Blood. As Lawrence put it:

I thought she was terrific. I was like, ‘Yeah, we don’t need to redo that.’ She did it.
