Jennifer Lawrence Working Again With Gary Ross


Recent news about Jennifer Lawrence seem to be all over the place as some speculate that the Hunger Games star is taking a year-long break from movie-making, while others claim she’s teaming up with Gary Ross once more for an upcoming blockbuster.

Whichever the true story, it seems Jennifer and the Hunger Games director are planning a new adaptation of John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. It’s hard not to look at Jennifer and Ross as the new Burton and Depp, but if it works why mess with it?

After giving J-Law her big break as Katniss Everdeen, Gary is again letting Lawrence take the leading role in the upcoming movie, which he wrote the screenplay for and will be directing.

However, Harvey Weinstein, the producer of Silver Linings Playbook, told Britain’s Sun recently, “She’s going to have a long break for a year where she won’t do anything. It’s been nonstop for her and she deserves a rest.”

“Jennifer is too nice and will do people favors and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest.”

“She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn’t have realized how much it would dominate her life. But she’s a professional and always will be.”

We’re not sure what to think, but we’re hoping for the Burton-Depp-like saga to continue.
