Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has signed on to star in Adam McKay’s upcoming comedy feature, titled “Don’t Look Up”.

The film—which has been acquired by Netflix—revolves around the tale of two scientists who discover that a meteor will strike our planet in six months, and embark on a press tour to warn the world of its imminent catastrophic impact, only to find that most people don’t believe them or care.

McKay will write and direct the film that has a budget of $75 million, with production slated to begin in April for a release later this year, as per Variety.

The project will be another in a long line of films for Lawrence, who has been nominated for four Oscars—winning one for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook”—while for McKay (who also directed “Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights”) it will mark a return to comedy, after his Oscar-winning economic and political dramas “The Big Short” and “Vice.” IB /ra
