In June, it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence will be starring in the new adaptation of The Wives, co-produced by Apple Studio and A24, as well as playwright Jeremy O. Harris, known for his work on Zola and Slave Play. There was reportedly quite a competition around the movie before the two huge studios won the story. The two companies have been working on projects together, including Spike Lee’s upcoming High and Low, a remake of the Akira Kurosawa film starring Denzel Washington.

They also worked on Steve! (Martin) a documentary in 2 pieces, and The Tragedy of Macbeth, directed by Joel Coen.

Here’s everything we know about the buzz worthy film and its planned release.

What is The Wives about?

The film is reportedly based off of the Real Housewives reality franchise, which means we can expect a lot of luxury, flowing wine, feuding, and domestic drama. And in the midst of all of that set dressing, there will be a classic murder mystery, according to Variety. The film is written by Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, who penned the the play Circle Jerk, which became a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

Lawrence has declared her fandom for the Housewives franchise on Bravo for years, telling E! that she would hand over her Oscar to the cast of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City for making the “best reality TV finale, I think, ever.”

“I’ll give ‘em mine! I don’t care,” Lawrence said. “They deserve it!”

She has also talked positively about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of New York City reboot, and The Real Housewives of Dallas.

Who is in The Wives?

Aside from Lawrence, there have been no other cast announcements. There will most likely be at least one other wife.

When will The Wives be released?
