It's not often when a movie featuring two high wattage stars takes years to get released, first getting scuttled to VOD followed by a limited run in theaters, but such is the fate of Susanne Bier's "Serena." Even with the presence of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, the film took its time in making its way to theaters, and unfortunately, it's because it's not very good. Nevertheless, given two actors of such high calibre, many remain curious, and two new clips from the film have arrived. Based on the novel by Ron Rash, the Depression-era story follows George and Serena, a couple who forge a mighty timber empire together. But the good times soon give way to bad when Serena can't conceive an heir. However, these two clips see the couple in happier times, with George seeing the fetching Serena riding a horse and later with the pair hitting »

With "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part II" slated for Nov. 20 release, the end of Jennifer Lawrence's blockbuster franchise is near. Indeed, it's been an unmatched breakout run for the actress: since 2011, Lawrence has racked up three Academy Award nominations ("Winter's Bone," "Silver Linings Playbook," for which she won Best Actress, and "American Hustle") and starred in a $1 billion-plus quadrilogy. How do you follow that up? For Lawrence, the answer seems to be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Her forthcoming projects reflect the same deft balance of box office spectacles—including a reprise of her role as Mystique in 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse," directed by Bryan Singer—and mid-budget prestige pictures from proven directors, including David O. Russell and now Steven Spielberg. (Due credit to "Winter's Bone" director Debra Granik for launching Lawrence's career, not to mention providing her finest role to »

As the sands slowly shift for that Chris Pratt/Indiana Jones affair that we’d be secretly okay with, another potential project for Spielberg has gained new life thanks to a deal being cut for its top star. Deadline have got word that Warner Bros. have nabbed Jennifer Lawrence to take the lead in true-life war tale, It’s What I Do, which will tell the story of Lynsey Addario, a renowned photographer whose work took her to some of the most dangerous locations in the world.
Adapted from Addario’s own book, A Photographer’s Life Of Love And War, It’s What I Do will focus on Addario’s career that took her to Afghanistan, Iraq, the Congo and Haiti to name a few. What could gain the most attention however, will be her time in March 2011, where she was held for six days in Libya, along with three other journalists. »

It's been reported that Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg are to work together on a biopic of Lynsey Addario, a photographer who's documented conflicts all around the globe. The movie, It's What I Do, will be based on Addario's memoir, It's What I Do; A Photographers Life Of Love & War. Spielberg wasn't the only interested party, but he managed to outbid Darren Aronofsky, Margot Robbie and George Clooney who had the backing of The Weinsteins for the project. Given the subject matter it's easy to see why so many were interested in developing the book for the big screen, and with Spielberg and Lawrence now apparently locked in, it's time to start considering renaming the movie All Of The Oscars, as it's surely jumped the queue for a future awards season favourite. »

Bidders including Working Title and The Weinstein Company have apparently been fighting for the novel's rights after an excerpt was featured in The New York Times Magazine.
Addario, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, shares her experiences from within Afghanistan after 9/11 in the memoir.
The journalist looks into how Afghans suffered during moments such as the Taliban regime and the Iraqi War, and also details the time she was kidnapped by pro-Gaddafi forces.
Warner Bros has also lined up Andrew Lazar to produce the movie alongside Spielberg, should it secure the rights. »
Warner Bros. has bagged the rights to Lynsey Addario's memoir, It's What I Do, about her Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalism, Deadline reports. The deal — which reportedly had Reese Witherspoon, Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman, and the Weinstein Company, among other suitors, knocking at the door — has Steven Spielberg helming and Jennifer Lawrence starring. The latter Oscar-winning badass will play Addario, a combat journalist who, in the face of danger and kidnappings, captured unforgettable imagery from such war-torn areas as Libya, Afghanistan, and the Congo. (If you're already having stress daydreams about the imminent American Sniper–esque trailer for this, you're probably not alone.) »

Pairing Steven Spielberg and Jennifer Lawrence, the biggest A-list director and arguably the biggest A-list actress today, seems like a no-brainer no matter what they’re working on. But with a property as hot as Lynsey Addario’s memoir, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, it’s got prestige and awards pedigree written all over it.
Deadline is reporting that Lawrence is attached to star in the Spielberg directed project for Warner Bros., and that the pair beat out other actresses bidding for the project from Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Margot Robbie and from directors such as Darren Aronofsky and George Clooney.
Addario has taken photos for everyone from AP, New York Times, Time, National Geographic, and Newsweek, and she’s been to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Israel, and Libya, where she was kidnapped along with three other colleagues, to name just a few of »
