Lawrence, Jennifer: Set to Star in Adam McKay’s Biopic of Elizabeth Holmes

The Big Short director Adam McKay and Jennifer Lawrence are attached to an untitled film about Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of the health-technology and medical-laboratory-services company Theranos.

Forbes named Holmes the richest self-made woman last year. The biotech entrepreneur’s net worth was completely reduced last week when Forbes revised the estimate from $4.5 billion to zero, after allegations that the company’s blood tests are inaccurate.

Lawrence will star and produce along with McKay, who will also write and direct the film.

McKay is coming off The Big Short, which earned him an Oscar for best adapted screenplay.
