Jennifer Lawrence sustains injuries after stunt goes wrong for Netflix’s 'Don’t Look Up'

Jennifer Lawrence has been injured after a glass explosion stunt went wrong on the set of the highly anticipated Netflix film, Don’t Look Up.

The forthcoming movie starring Lawrence opposite Leonardo DiCaprio has halted production due to the injury that the actor has sustained during filming that has left them in a quandary. According to Deadline: “The film follows two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy Earth.”

They were filming in Boston when the incident occurred, and it has since been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. Lawrence was involved in a scene with Timothee Chalamet when the controlled glass explosion sent shards of glass flying and left her with minor injuries.

Don’t Look Up stars Lawrence and DiCaprio as two low-level scientists who try to tell the world about an impending meteor. The film is directed by Adam McKay, who previously directed The Big Short and HBO’s Succession.

Mckay has enlisted a star-studded cast for the picture with Cate Blanchett, Ariana Grande, Matthew Perry, Tyler Perry, Kid Cudi, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Tomer Sisley, Ron Perlman, Melanie Lynskey, Rob Morgan and Chris Evans also set to feature in the film.

Back in February 2020, McKay spoke of his excitement to work with Lawrence, telling Deadline, “I’m so thrilled to make this movie with Jen Lawrence. She’s what folks in the 17th century used to call ‘a dynamite talent’. And the fact that Netflix sees this movie as a worldwide comedy sets the bar high for me and my team in an exciting and motivating way.”
