‘X-Men’ star Jennifer Lawrence to star in ‘Glass Castle’ adaptation


Fresh off the success of “The Hunger Games”, Jennifer Lawrence and Lionsgate appear to be attempting to secure the actress in another one of their projects: the adaptation of the Jeanne Walls’ memoir “The Glass Castle.”

Deadline reports that the adaptation of gossip columnist’s book , a New York Bestseller, will be written by Marti Noxon (“Fright Night”). The 21year-old actress has a couple of more films landing in 2012: David O. Russell’s “The Silver Linings Playbook” coming in November and the horror flick “House a the End of the Street,” which comes to theaters in September.

Lawrence is set to return as Mystique in a sequel to last summer’s “X-Men: First Class” and while there are few details, production is set to begin in the first quarter of 2013.

She is currently filming “Serena” alongside Bradley Cooper before returning as Katniss for “Catching Fire,” which begins production in August.
