Jennifer to produce ‘Glass Castle’

DHAKA: The Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence was previously expected to play Jeanette Walls in a film adaptation of her best-selling 2005 memoir, and she has now confirmed she is producing the project, too.

She said, ‘I don’t know if I will be any good, but I’m trying it. So far I am not sure if I am because I am very instinctual, but not very verbal. But producing is something that I have really wanted to do’.

The actress says she was drawn to the story, which chronicles Walls’ dysfunctional upbringing with an eccentric artist mother and alcoholic father, after her mother read the book and urged her to do the same.

She said, ‘My mother is like the lucky charm with these kinds of things. She read ‘Winter’s Bone’ and ‘Hunger Games’ and when I read ‘The Glass Castle’ I thought it was amazing, so we found Gil Netter, the producer who had the rights to (the book). He and I started talking and now we are developing. We have a director and a writer and it’s getting going’.

‘The Glass Castle’ will be directed by Destin Cretton and the original screenplay was written by Marti Noxon.

Lawrence next stars in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, which is out on November 21, reports contactmusic.com.
