Jennifer Lawrence may be reuniting with Hunger Games director Gary Ross for the upcoming project, which is being produced by original Ocean’s trilogy director Steven Soderbergh.

How did you maintain your soul in a city that is so filled with people who are trying to lie to us?”
Boy, Billy Bob Thornton with no hair really looks like James Carville, huh?
