Jennifer Lawrence / The Glass Castle

It was clear after her Oscar-nominated work in Winter's Bone that Jennifer Lawrence was an actress on the rise. Lionsgate wisely snagged her for The Hunger Games franchise, and now the studio is looking to keep her happy in between next year's Catching Fire and Mockingjay, the third film in the trilogy. Lawrence has been tapped to star as famed gossip columnist Jeanette Walls in The Glass Castle, a film adaptation of her memoir of the same name that stayed on the NY Times Best Seller list for 261 weeks. The movie covers Walls' childhood, which featured a nomadic lifestyle and parents who weren't exactly well-adjusted.

Walls' childhood is a fascinating story that will provide Lawrence with the opportunity to tread some familiar ground in a role of a young woman who must deal with extraordinary circumstances in a poverty-stricken environment. Though not quite as heightened as The Hunger Games and Winter's Bone, The Glass Castle should continue to show us how great Lawrence can be with purely dramatic material. Deadline says screenwriter Marti Noxon (2011's Fright Night, "Mad Men") will be behind the pen on this one, and Gil Netters (Water For Elephants, The Blind Side) is producing, but no director is attached yet.

what's with her neck?

Lawrence is very beautiful & talented modern actress, she must choose her project very precisely. She must play in movies better than her previous movies. She doesnt must become cliche. She must always think about winning Oscar, I think after one big budget movie she must play in one low budget film with some unique director. She must learn a lot, way of cinema is longer than life I love her
