Apple Original Films continues to expand on its diverse film slate as it has landed the rights to Causeway, a new film starring and produced by Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, and directed by Lila Neugebauer. A24 produced and developed the project. The film will make its global debut in-theaters and on Apple TV+ later this year.
The film marks the latest project for Apple Original Films and Lawrence, who is attached to star in and produce alongside Justine Ciarrocchi an untitled Sue Mengers biopic, which is currently in development with Paolo Sorrentino directing. Lawrence and Ciarrocchi are also attached to produce Bad Blood starring Lawrence, an Apple Original feature film from Academy Award winner Adam McKay.
Neugebauer is a theater, film, and television director from New York City. Her stage work includes the Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s The Waverly Gallery, starring Elaine May, new plays by Annie Baker, Sarah DeLappe, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Zoe Kazan, Tracy Letts, and Simon Stephens, among others, as well as various revivals.
