Continuing to fill her slate with a mix of prestige and commercial projects, Jennifer Lawrence is attached to star and produce “Rules of Inheritance” for FilmNation.
Susanne Bier will direct with Abi Morgan penning the script.
Story is based on Claire Bidwell Smith’s powerful and honest memoir about a young woman who loses her family but finds herself in the process. Besides Lawrence, Bruce Cohen will also produce.
FilmNation’s EVP, Worldwide Production Allison Silver brought the project into FilmNation, which negotiated its deal with CAA. CAA will also package the project and represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.
The project would be the first film Lawrence would produce who after a whirlwind 2012 with huge success at the box office with “The Hunger Games” and an Oscar on “Silver Linings Playbook,” Lawrence is now looking for a little more creative control on the projects she is involved in.
She can be seen next in Lionsgate’s “Catching Fire” and Sony’s “American Hustle.” She is repped by CAA and attorney’s Gretchen Rush and Steven Warren.
