From winning an Oscar to sharing the screen with fictional housewives, Jennifer Lawrence's love for reality TV reaches new heights in her latest film venture.

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lawrence, the 33-year-old Academy Award winner, continues to diversify her filmography with an exciting new project that aligns with her reality TV super-fandom. Apple Original Films recently announced that Lawrence will produce and star in "The Wives," a murder mystery inspired by Bravo's popular "Real Housewives" series.

The announcement has generated considerable buzz, as the film was acquired by Apple in what is described as a "highly competitive situation." "The Wives" will be co-produced by Apple Studios and A24, marking another collaboration following their success with "Causeway," which also starred and was produced by Lawrence.

The project will be penned by Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, known for their Pulitzer Prize finalist play "Circle Jerk." As for plot specifics, they are being kept tightly under wraps, but sources suggest the film will resemble a "Knives Out" style ensemble whodunit featuring elite housewives who could potentially be murderers.

Lawrence will produce the film under her Excellent Cadaver banner alongside Justine Ciarrocchi. Joining them are Jeremy O. Harris ("Zola," "Slave Play") and Josh Godfrey, producing through their bb² banner. Harris, notably, has a blossoming relationship with Apple and A24, as he continues to develop several series for FX, HBO, and Legendary.

Jennifer Lawrence's long-time affection for the "Real Housewives" franchise is no secret. Over the years, she has expressed her admiration for various series in the franchise, from "New York Housewives" to "Miami Housewives." Her passion culminated in unforgettable moments like a surprise dinner party featuring her favorite "Housewives" orchestrated by Andy Cohen in 2018.

The project fits seamlessly into a lineup of anticipated works from Apple, including high-profile films featuring Hollywood heavyweights like Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt. Despite the competitive market, "The Wives" promises to be a unique satirical ride through the drama-filled lives of fictional housewives, tapping into the elements that make reality TV so irresistibly compelling.

As fans eagerly await further details, one thing is clear: Lawrence's foray into a Real Housewives-inspired murder mystery is bound to be an intriguing blend of glamour, suspense, and the entertaining chaos that has made the Bravo franchise a household name.
