Deadline is reporting that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in the adaptation of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. The rights were were originally bought in 2005, but they were recently acquired by Erik Fieg, newly appointed head of production at both Summit and Lionsgate. This is exciting for me, since I loved this book! It was one of the few books I’ve read for school, and actually enjoyed. Plus, Jennifer Lawrence? Amazing! It’s a great role for her: brave, strong, smart, and independent. The true story follows the author, Jeannette, throughout her life with her “dysfunctional but vibrant” family. Gil Getter (Life of Pi) will produce, and Marti Noxon will be writing the screenplay.


Kimmy is a 21 year old nerdfighter who is the founder and editor-in-chief of Page to Premiere. When she's not writing about books and movies here or on her Hunger Games site called Mockingjay.net, she loves Tumblr-ing, eating sushi, drinking Thai iced tea, and being lazy with her cat Rue! She hopes to be a published author one day. You can follow her on Twitter at @kimmymary.

    I can’t think of a better choice to play Jeannette Walls. She is such an inspiring woman! I heard her speak at a school event, and she has such a vibrant presence, much like Jennifer Lawrence.
