Apple TV+ is officially in the progress of producing a film based on Theranos’ founder Elizabeth Holmes, titled Bad Blood.

Jennifer Lawrence is set to star as the titular character of Holmes, while Adam McKay has signed on to write and direct the project. The movie, which has been in development since 2016, is based on the novel Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Start Up. The visual project will dive into the rise and fall of Holmes’ company and how the youngest self-made billionaire at the time was accused of fraud for her blood-testing startup. The charges later led to Holmes stepping down from the CEO position in 2018 and the company entering into liquidation that same year. Holmes is still currently facing trial for fraud.

The story of Theranos has been made into several film and TV projects. In 2019, Hulu greenlit a miniseries with Kate McKinnon initially supposed to play Holmes before Amanda Seyfried signed on. Additionally, HBO created a documentary about the Theranos saga which also premiered in 2019. There is currently no release date available regarding the project. After the fraud accusations, Holmes was named one of “The World’s 19 Most Disappoint Leaders” by Forbes.

In other entertainment news, Dave Chappelle is confirmed to perform at Netflix Is A Joke comedy festival.
