Jennifer Lawrence heading to 'The Ends of the Earth' for epic romance
Just think of Jennifer Lawrence as the "Soon-Yi Previn" of her next film.
The "Hunger Games" actress is in talks to star in "The Ends of the Earth," an epic romance that's just been acquired by The Weinstein Co. Lawrence will play the role of Lydie Marland, the adopted daughter and future wife of early-20th century oil tycoon Ernest "E.W." Marland. The film will focus on the couple's controversial love affair, which ensued following the death of Marland's first wife in 1926. Lydie later became First Lady of Oklahoma when Marland won the governor's office there in 1934, and the two remained married until E.W.'s death in 1941.
“I’m not sure that anything resonates more with an audience than a true story," said Harvey Weinstein in a statement. "Jennifer Lawrence shows the skill of a seasoned veteran in everything she does, and we’re thrilled to work with her again.”
With a screenplay by Chris Terrio ("Argo"), the search is now on for a director to take the helm, as well as a lead actor to play the sure-to-be-coveted role of E.W.
Lawrence will next be seen in the horror-thriller "House at the End of the Street" opposite Elisabeth Shue and Max Thierot, as well as David O. Russell's "The Silver Linings Playbook" with Bradley Cooper. The films are scheduled to hit theaters on September 21 and November 21, respectively. The in-demand actress also begins production on "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire" this fall, with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" slated for an early-2013 start.
