Jennifer Lawrence is taking a big leap. According to the Hollywood Reporter, a new footage of Red Sparrow, shown at a special Fox event, highlighted the adult nature of the film.
The director, Francis Lawrence, told during the event that this movie is definitely going to be R. He also revealed that when he pitched the idea of his approach for the movie, nobody chickened out or got cold feet, everyone was up for it. “It is a hard R.”
The film, which also stars Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, Mary Louise Parker and Charlotte Rampling, sees Lawrence reuniting with her Hunger Games director.
The film is heavy on sex, with the Oscar-winning actor’s character trained to seduce the individuals deemed enemies of the Russian state.
Talking about working with the Passengers star, he said, she was willing to take some risks in this movie, but might not have been willing to do for somebody she didn’t know.
Lawrence revealed that there was just one week’s worth of shooting left to do, with production taking place across Europe and now in London.
Red Sparrow is due for a release in March 2018.
