The latest from Darren Aronofsky, mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence arrives in theaters this week. But it’s not the only Lawrence movie coming soon.
Early next year comes a movie titled Red Sparrow, which stars Lawrence as a ballerina who, after a serious injury, ends up in a school which trains its students to use their bodies and minds as weapons. It’s based on author Jason Matthews‘ book of the same name.
20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which can be found below along with a full description.
Dominika Egorova is many things.
A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.
A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit.
A master of seductive and manipulative combat.
When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
The movie is directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed Jennifer Lawrence in all but the first Hunger Games movies, and also directed I Am Legend and Constantine. The screenplay was written by Justin Haythe, whose credits include Revolutionary Road, The Lone Ranger, A Cure for Wellness, and the upcoming Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody starring Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
Also starring in the movie is Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, and Jeremy Irons.
Red Sparrow will be released in theaters on March 2, 2018.
