She may be lighting up screens everywhere as The Hunger Games’ scrappy survivor, Katniss Everdeen, but that doesn’t mean Jennifer Lawrence has stopped planning her career outside the massively popular franchise. The Kentucky-born beauty is in talks to star in the drama The Glass Castle based on the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls, which is the only memoir in history to spend more than 250 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list. The book centers on Walls’ unconventional childhood. Now a successful gossip columnist, Walls was forced to take care of herself from an early age while living with an alcoholic father and a mother who found parenthood overwhelming. This wouldn’t be the first time Lawrence played an independent survivor. Aside from her widely popular turn as The Hunger Games’ girl on fire, the 21-year-old earned an Oscar nomination for her work in the 2010 independent drama Winter’s Bone.
