Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in Darren Aronofsky’s next project


9daR7CFIt’s been a rather interesting couple of days for Jennifer Lawrence. First, the buzz for her role in David O. Russell‘s upcoming Joy got a boost from reports of a positive test screening. Then of course came her on point/powerful remarks about gender inequality and pay discrepancies in Hollywood (which you can and should read right here). Shortly after that, it came to light that she’d dropped out of The Rosie Project, but despite leaving that promising project, reports now have her joining an even more interesting one. Yes, she’s apparently in talks to star in a mystery film from Darren Aronofsky. The filmmaker wrote this independent flick after he couldn’t get funding for a different movie going, so this is likely to be closer to Black Swan or Requiem for a Dream in terms of scale, as opposed to The Fountain or Noah. Aronofsky is one of my favorite directors in the business and Lawrence is one of my favorite young actresses, so this pairing has me pretty excited. Nothing is known about the film just yet, but expect that to change once she signs on officially and pre-production gets going. Stay tuned for much more on this budding partnership between Aronfosky and Lawrence…
