Jennifer Lawrence is back! She has produced and is starring in 'No Hard Feelings' - the new comedy co-written and directed by Gene Stupnitsky, and co-written by John Phillips.

"On the brink of losing her childhood home, Maddie discovers an intriguing job listing: wealthy helicopter parents looking for someone to 'date' their introverted 19-year-old son, Percy, before he leaves for college. To her surprise, Maddie soon discovers the awkward Percy is no sure thing."

The film also stars: Andrew Barth Feldman, Laura Benanti, Natalie Morales, and Matthew Broderick.

'No Hard Feelings' is in cinemas June 22nd!

#1. The role of Maddie was written for Jennifer Lawrence! In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gene Stupnitsky shared that the idea for the film came from a real Craigslist ad: "I read it, and I thought, 'This is wild. Who is the woman that answers this ad?' And I thought, 'Oh, that'll be a great role for my friend Jennifer Lawrence." 

And in an interview with Total Film he said: "I didn’t know she would do it, but I wrote it for her."

#2. Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Barth Feldman have been doing a bunch of press together!

#3. This is Andrew Barth Feldman's second film ever! The actor previously appeared on Broadway as the title character in 'Dear Evan Hansen'. 

Director Gene Stupnitsky talks about casting Andrew: “We saw Andrew on the second day, and right away, I thought, ‘He’s so good.' He just nailed it. He nailed the comedy, he nailed the emotion. We went and saw a lot of other people – but I was relaxed, because I knew we had Andrew. It was clear, he was always the one.”

#4. He even delayed going to Harvard to star in the film.
