They’re already attached to the true crime drama Mob Girl, and it seems that actress Jennifer Lawrence and filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino are looking to add a second project to their slate with a biopic of legendary Hollywood talent agent Sue Mengers.
The as-yet-untitled project has been written by Lauren Schuker Blum, Rebecca Angelo and John Logan, the latter of whom previously produced a stage play starring Bette Midler, and has both Apple and Netflix looking to make a deal.
In addition to producing, Lawrence is also circling the role of Mengers, a talent agent who broke into the male-dominated business during the 1960s and would represent high profile clients such as Barbra Streisand, Steve McQueen, Joan Collins, and Burt Reynolds throughout her career.
Lawrence recently wrapped filming on Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up, and also has an untitled mystery project from A24 and acclaimed theater director Lila Neugebauer in the can.
