Jennifer Lawrence, currently reigning supreme as the lead in the current #1 film The Hunger Games, has begun work on a new film co-starring Bradley Cooper in Prague. The pair will star in a feature film titled Serena that is set in the 1930s and revolves around the drama and intrigue of … the lumber industry. Er, yeah. Honestly, I can’t say that this information really excites me but … I do love me some J. Law so … I’m willing to give the film the benefit of the doubt. Click below for our first look at Jennifer and Bradley in Serena and see if this film looks like something that might be of interest to you.
Though Lionsgate is undoubtedly scrambling to find a director for the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire before production begins this fall, star Jennifer Lawrence is currently busy shooting the thriller Serena. The first image from the film, featuring Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, has been released along with the announcement that production has commenced in Prague. The pic is an adaptation of the New York Times best-selling Ron Rash novel about George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence), a 1930s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry. Infidelity and infertility leads Serena to plot the murder of George’s illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government.
HMMM. Well. As I said, I love Jennifer Lawrence so I’m going to *try* and give this film the benefit of the doubt. The costumes look great and I love seeing Jen all dolled up in vintage realness. I guess I get that all Jennifer Lawrence films can’t be exactly like The Hunger Games so … well, we’ll see. Murder and lumber can be exciting … I think. Right?
