Jennifer Lawrence to Reunite with ‘Hunger Games’ Director for ‘Burial Rites’

By  | 

LionsgateThat Jennifer Lawrence is one busy girl. Not only is she currently filming Mockingjay (and, potentially, a cameo in Dumb and Dumber To), but now she's in negotiations for yet another film.

Along with her Hunger Games director, Gary Ross, the 23-year-old actress is reportedly tapped for Burial Rites, "a feature adaptation of Hannah Kent's novel centering on a murder trial in Iceland in 1829," which was published last month.

This would be the second film project for Jennifer and Gary in the past two weeks as it was recently announced that they would be partnering up for the book-to-movie version of John Steinbeck's East of Eden. The plot: "In the Salinas Valley, in and around World War I, Cal Trask feels he must compete against overwhelming odds with his brother Aron for the love of their father Adam. Cal is frustrated at every turn, from his reaction to the war, to how to get ahead in business and in life, to how to relate to estranged mother."

So many Jennifer Lawrence goodies! But if you can't wait to see those flicks, make sure to catch her in Catching Fire (November 22, 2013), American Hustle (December 25, 2013), and X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23, 2014).
