Jennifer Lawrence R-Rated Comedy No Hard Feelings Gets Release Date From Sony

Jennifer Lawrence is teaming up with Gene Stupnitsky for her new R-rated comedy, No Hard Feelings. This will be the first film for Lawrence since she starred in Don’t Look Up in 2021, which received four Oscar nominations. According to a report from Deadline, the film is set to hit theaters on June 16th, 2023.

Stupnitsky previously worked on Good Boys, another R-rated movie following three 6th grade boys who ditch school, embarking on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs. In addition, he directed two episodes of The Office; both were regarded as better episodes in the series, including Michael Scott Paper Company and The Lover. He also wrote the screenplay for the 2009 film Year One, starring Jack Black and Michael Cera, and wrote Bad Teacher, starring Cameron Diaz.
