The 32-year-old made a fortune with her firm, which claimed to have revolutionised blood testing. However, the company is now under investigation over allegations of inaccurate test results, claims they have denied.

The biopic - which doesn't have a title as yet - will be directed by Adam McKay.

Jennifer, 25, has several movies in the pipeline including sci-fi flick Passengers.
