Jennifer Lawrence May Play Journalist Jeannette Walls in 'The Glass Castle'


The 'Hunger Games' star is courted to tackle the female lead in the upcoming film, which is based on the former MSNBC gossip columnist's memoir of the same title.

Jennifer Lawrence is close to secure a prestigious role in another book adaptation film. After recently landing key roles in "The Hunger Games" and "Serena", Lawrence is now in talks to star in "The Glass Castle" which is based on a memoir by journalist Jeannette Walls.

According to Deadline, the "Winter's Bone" actress is expected to star as Walls in the upcoming film. The movie itself is based on the former MSNBC gossip columnist's bestselling and critically acclaimed book "The Glass Castle: A Memoir", which rights have just been acquired by Lionsgate Films.

Published in 2005, Walls' memoir focuses on the writer's difficult childhood with her "dysfunctional but vibrant" family. The book was included on The New York Times bestseller list for over 250 weeks, which was the longest for any memoir. As for the upcoming movie, the script will be provided by "I Am Number Four" scribe Marti Noxon.

Lawrence is currently filming "Serena" in Prague along with Bradley Cooper, who is also her co-star in "The Silver Linings Playbook". The actress' other upcoming movies include "House at the End of the Street", as well as two highly anticipated sci-fi pics "Catching Fire" and untitled X-Men: First Class sequel.
