Apple TV+ is backing a new feature film from Adam McKay titled "Bad Blood," with Jennifer Lawrence set to star as the Theranos CEO.

"Bad Blood" will chronicle the rise and fall of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, played by Lawrence. Apple Original Studios will produce the film alongside Legendary Pictures, Variety reported Tuesday

McKay will direct, write, and produce the film, which follows the "spectacular rise and fall, one that began with the promise of revolutionizing the health care system and ended with the collapse of her company and a trial for fraud."

The film is based on "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley," a nonfiction title by investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner John Carreyrou.

"Bad Blood" will be produced by McKay and Kevin Messick via Hyberobject Industries, which has a multi-year, first-look deal with Apple. Lawrence and Polsky will produce through Excellent Cadaver. Will Ferell is set to produce through Gary Sanchez Productions.
