Jennifer Lawrence fans will have to wait to see her take on a killer Russian ballerina.
20th Century Fox has pushed its thriller “Red Sparrow,” led by the Oscar winner as a dancer-turned-spy, from a planned Nov. 10 release. The film will now open March 2, 2018, the studio said on Saturday.
Lawrence plays Dominika Egorova, a prima ballerina seemingly sabotaged with an injury by another performer in her dance company. Not wanting to let her able body and dramatic versatility go to waste, Charlotte Rampling recruits her as a spy for the Russian Government.
Lawrence has multiple visual personalities in footage screened at CinemaCon in March: Brooding brunette, redhead ballerina, blonde femme fatale. While we saw her spy training under the watchful eye of Rampling, Fox didn’t quite let Lawrence out of the box — no ass-kicking from the star in this footage. Lawrence will next appear in Darren Aronofsky’s horror thriller “Mother!” which hits theaters Oct. 13.
