Apple Studios will produce “Bad Blood,” a film from Jennifer Lawrence and Adam McKay about Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes.

The “Don’t Look Up” filmmaker will write, direct and produce “Bad Blood,” and Lawrence will both produce and star as Holmes.

The film will chart the story of Holmes’ Silicon Valley blood testing startup that catapulted her to being the youngest and richest self-made billionaire before claims of fraud brought everything crashing down. The film is based on “Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley” from Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist John Carreyrou, who broke the initial story.

Apple Studios will produce in association with Legendary Pictures. “Bad Blood” will be produced by McKay and Kevin Messick through their Hyperobject Industries, with which Apple has a multi-year, first-look deal for scripted feature films. Lawrence and Polsky will also produce through Excellent Cadaver, and Will Ferrell will produce through Gary Sanchez Productions.
