No need to talk to any other actresses, you guys! We give you our solemn FABLife pledge that Jennifer Lawrence will absolutely kill it if cast in this movie. Deadline reports that Lawrence is currently “in talks” to star in a film adaptation of The Glass Castle: A Memoir. Written by former MSNBC gossip columnist Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle describes Walls’ dysfunctional, eccentric, nomadic family, and is packed full of the things that Jennifer has already demonstrated she can do in both Winter’s Bone and Hunger Games: taking care of vulnerable younger siblings, eking out a hard-scrabble life despite her negligent parents, being tall. And that’s just off the top of our heads!
Frankly we don’t know how Lawrence will fit it in between shooting the X-Men: First Class sequel and next two Hunger Games films. And, sure, maybe this isn’t exactly brand-new territory for Jennifer, but do we really want to see her in some kind of How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days-type movie (Working title: How To Lose 10 Guys In A Day)? Or do we want to see Jennifer triumph over adversity with a clenched jaw and steely resolve? Alright then. We thought as much.
