Apple Original Films lands “Causeway,” new feature starring and produced by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence

Press Release July 20, 2022

Apple Original Films today announced it will expand its award-winning feature film slate with “Causeway,” a new film starring and produced by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (“Don’t Look Up,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle”), and directed by Lila Neugebauer (Broadway’s “The Waverly Gallery,” “Maid,” “The Last Thing He Told Me”). Hailing from A24, “Causeway” will make its global debut in theaters and on Apple TV+ later this year.

“Causeway” is an intimate portrait of a soldier struggling to adjust to her life after returning home to New Orleans.

Emmy and Tony Award nominee Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta,” “Bullet Train,” “If Beale Street Could Talk”) co-stars alongside Lawrence.

Filmed in New Orleans, the A24 film is written by Ottessa Moshfegh, Luke Goebel and Elizabeth Sanders. Lawrence produces alongside Justine Ciarrocchi for Excellent Cadaver. In addition to directing, Neugebauer serves as executive producer. “Causeway” is produced by IAC Films, IPR.VC, Excellent Cadaver and A24.

Momentum around the Apple Original Films slate continues to grow since the debut of Apple TV+. In addition to “CODA” landing three historic Academy Awards, including this year’s top prize for Best Picture, Apple Original Films recently premiered the broadly acclaimed “Cha Cha Real Smooth,” winner of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival US Dramatic Audience Award, and will soon premiere highly anticipated titles including “Raymond & Ray,” starring Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke; Peter Farrelly’s “The Greatest Beer Run Ever,” a new dramedy starring Zac Efron and Russell Crowe and based on the true story; “Spirited,” the modern musical rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday story “A Christmas Carol,” starring Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer; and Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

Apple TV+ offers premium, compelling drama and comedy series, feature films, groundbreaking documentaries, and kids and family entertainment, and is available to watch across all your favorite screens. After its launch on November 1, 2019, Apple TV+ became the first all-original streaming service to launch around the world, and has premiered more original hits and received more award recognitions faster than any other streaming service in its debut. To date, Apple Original films, documentaries and series have earned 246 wins and 1,115 award nominations and counting.
