The screenplay for the film was written by Justin Haythe, and the spy-thriller is based on the original novel written by Jason Matthews (starting at $10 on Amazon). “Red Sparrow” was produced by Peter Chernin, Steve Zaillian, and Jenno Topping, the film itself will hit theaters on March 2, 2018.
The film has quite a cast, joining Jennifer Lawrence in the thriller are Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons. Earlier this year the studio described the film adding, “Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.

In the story, Egorova suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
