Jennifer Lawrence may take lead in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
Jennifer Lawrence is the frontrunner to take the lead in David O Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook, the drama that has Mark Wahlberg set to star. She would play the lead role that has been coveted by a bevy of other stars, including Rachel McAdams, Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway and Andrea Riseborough. Deadline is reporting that if cast, Lawrence would shoot the film after she completes the role of Katniss Everdeen in Gary Ross's adaptation of The Hunger Games.
The film is slated to begin this fall. The project is based on Matthew Quick's novel, the film revolves around "a former high school teacher who was institutionalized for depression and is then released into the care of his mother. He tries to win back his ex-wife but becomes involved with an eccentric neighbor with problems of her own."
I am a huge fan of Lawrence and am excited to see her in Hunger Games. This sounds like a nice role for her to follow up her role as Katniss. What are your thoughts on this news?
