Jennifer Lawrence to Star in, Produce Murder Mystery ‘The Wives’ for Apple, A24

Apple Original Film, A24 and Jennifer Lawrence are reteaming for a new feature film.

Landing on top of a competitive situation, Apple has acquired murder mystery package The Wives, which has Lawrence attached to star and produce.

Joining Lawrence on the producing team is Justine Ciarrocchi, her partner at the duo’s Excellent Cadaver production banner, as well as Tony and Independent Spirit Award nominee Jeremy O. Harris (Zola, Slave Play) and Josh Godfrey. The latter two will produce under their bb2 banner.


Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley wrote the script for the project, which is described as being in development. No director is attached.


Plot details are being kept in the body bag, but it is being described as being partly inspired by the Real Housewives franchise, which focuses on the soap operatic and over-the-top theatrics of well-to-do women in areas ranging from Orange County to Miami to Atlanta.

Wives will be co-produced by Apple Studios and A24. The two companies, as well as Lawrence, previously teamed on the 2022 drama Causeway.

Apple and A24 have quickly become one of the town’s reliable partnerships. The companies are in production on High and Low, a Spike Lee drama starring Denzel Washington; recently released STEVE! (Martin) a Documentary in 2 Pieces from Academy Award winner Morgan Neville; and will soon premiere dark comedy series Sunny starring Rashida Jones.

Breslin may be best known for his stage work. He recently directed Invasive Species by Maia Novi at the Vineyard Theater and, as a creative director of Fake Friends with Foley, made Pulitzer finalist Circle Jerk and This American Wife from FourthWall Theatricals.

Foley is an Obie-winning actor and writer who was last seen at The New Group in Thomas Bradshaw’s The Seagull in Woodstock, NY. Circle Jerk, co-written with Breslin, is a 2022 Obie Winner and 2021 Pulitzer Prize finalist in drama.

Lawrence last starred in the R-rated comedy No Hard Feelings.
