Jennifer Lawrence in Talks to Star in Darren Aronofsky’s Next Film
Jennifer Lawrence may blame herself for failing to negotiate for higher salaries, as she boldly wrote about in an essay on Hollywood’s gender pay gap on Tuesday, but she's already lining up her next movie with a major filmmaker. According to Variety, Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in Darren Aronofsky's next untitled project. Very little is known about the project, besides that it will be written and directed by the Black Swan filmmaker.
The indie project currently has no distributor, but is said to begin shooting next spring. Lawrence finishes up her run as Katniss Everdeen in the final Hunger Games film this November, and also stars in David O. Russell's Joy, which opens Christmas Day. The actress is currently filming Morten Tyldum's sci-fi drama Passengers alongside Chris Pratt, but will have more room in her schedule next year now that it appears she's dropped out of Richard Linklater's The Rosie Project. As far as the director's other upcoming projects, Aronofsky recently teamed up with Channing Tatum for his Evel Knievel biopic. And here begins the guessing game for who Lawrence will be playing for Aronofsky.
