Jennifer Lawrence to Get Romantic in ‘The Rosie Project’
Now that The Hunger Games franchise is coming to a close (for her, anyway), Jennifer Lawrence has begun lining up her post-Games projects. In addition to co-starring with Chris Pratt in the upcoming sci-fi film Passengers, Lawrence has also signed on to star in the romantic dramedy The Rosie Project, which previously had Phil Lord and Chris Miller interested in directing.
That was, of course, until the duo signed on for the young Han Solo Star Wars anthology movie, set to arrive in 2018. According to THR, The Rosie Project is looking to line up another director, but in the meantime, Lawrence has signed on to star in the film.
The Rosie Project was scripted by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, the writers behind (500) Days of Summer, The Spectacular Now and The Fault in Our Stars. The new film centers on “a socially inept genetics professor” who concocts what he believes to be the most scientifically viable process of finding his ideal match. Trouble arises in the form of Rosie, a beautiful young woman who possesses qualities that completely oppose his “ideal.”
Lawrence is currently at Comic-Con 2015, where she appeared at the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 yesterday afternoon. She’ll also be on hand at Fox’s panel for X-Men: Apocalypse this Saturday.
