Jennifer Lawrence Learning 'Rules of Inheritance' for Susanne Bier

June 6, 2013

Jennifer Lawrence

Later this year, Jennifer Lawrence is getting back in action on the big screen with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, following her Academy Award winning turn in Silver Linings Playbook last year. She recently finished reateaming with director David O. Russell for American Hustle, and now Deadline has word that Lawrence is reuniting with another director from her recent past. Film Nation Entertainment just landed Lawrence to star in The Rules of Inheritance from director Susanne Bier, who worked with Lawrence and her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper on the yet-to-be-released period drama Serena.

Abi Morgan (Shame, The Iron Lady) is behind the script adapting Claire Bidwell Smith's memoir which chronicles a tough coming-of-age tale after both of her parents are diagnosed with cancer when she is just 14-years-old. In order to cope with her eventual loss, Claire tries to find solace in young men, traveling across the country, getting lost in New York and Los Angeles, and alcohol. But the real struggle begins when her parents have finally left her at 25-years-old. While it sounds very sad and tragic, the book is said to capture "the deep grief and surprising light of a young woman forging ahead on a journey of loss that humbled, strengthened, and ultimately healed her." Sounds like a great opportunity for Lawrence.
