Along with Ciarrocchi, Lawrence is set to produce and star in two other films for Apple, Adam McKay’s Elizabeth Holmes biopic “Bad Blood,” and an untitled Sue Mengers biopic directed by Paolo Sorrentino. Also on Lawrence’s slate is the Gene Stupnitsky comedy “No Hard Feelings.”

Henry will next be seen in the Brad Pitt-starring “Bullet Train,” and will lend his voice to “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” in 2023.

Goebel and Moshfegh are adapting the latter’s debut novel “Eileen” into a thriller starring Thomasin McKenzie and Anne Hathaway.

“Causeway” marks Neugebauer’s feature directorial debut. She is repped by UTA and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole.
