Jennifer Lawrence and Catt Sadler are reportedly teaming up for a #MeToo, Time's Up docuseries
Jennifer Lawrence spilled in an interview about how she is planning to move the movement to the screen.
The #MeToo movement is slowly spreading its wings and thanks to Jennifer Lawrence and Catt Sadler, the movement, along with the Time's Up movement, will be showcased to a larger audience now, as the two are planning on creating a docu-series based on the same.
The news was spilled by Jennifer when she stopped at women's workspace The Wing in New York City. While speaking to The Wing co-founder Audrey Gelman in order to promote her upcoming new film Red Sparrow for Fox, the actress announced that she had teamed up with Catt to create the series.
When she was asked to elaborate on the same, she said: "I wasn't supposed to announce that but I am." According to a source of Hollywood Reporter, the Hunger Games actress is planning on showing the world a bigger picture as to why these moments hold such importance.
"The pair is looking to take a deep dive into issues facing women today and have brought Stephanie Soechtig into the mix to direct," the source said. It is reported that the team will kickstart the project once they secure a distributor. Previously, Catt had spoken about how Jennifer and she had gotten to know each other better.
"Jennifer Lawrence has become a friend of mine — really, a hero of mine," she said in an interview where she discussed her exit from E! after learning that she made far less money than her male colleague Jason Kennedy. "Long before my own experiences, her voice has been an empowering one and one I've always admired. To have her in my corner is hard to put into words, to be honest," she continued.
Catt had mentioned that she was focusing on moving forward in her career and making a docuseries was one of the many things that were on her mind. "In this weird sense, I feel like I have an obligation to do work and represent the many voices who don't have an audience. Between #MeToo, Time's Up and the general climate right now, I would prefer to use my voice in a way that could create content that has never been made before," she said at the time.
