Jennifer Lawrence: Jeannette Walls in 'The Glass Castle'?

Jennifer Lawrence‘s post-Hunger Games schedule might be getting busier!

The 21-year-old actress is reportedly in talks to star in the big screen adaptation of The Glass Castle: A Memoir by gossip columnist Jeannette Walls.

“Critically well received when it was published in 2005, Walls’ book was a surprise because it focused on her difficult childhood with her “dysfunctional but vibrant” family. It was on The New York Times bestseller list for over 250 weeks, the longest for any memoir,” Deadline notes.

Up next for Jennifer is the horror thriller House at the End of the Street, as well as the comedy The Silver Linings Playbook opposite Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.

    when does she have time to sleep?

  • Megan

    I have no idea why girls like her so much. She was so mean to me in school. She was always so stuck up and rude and made fun of the way people looked.

  • Creed

    No. Just no. I like Jennifer and all but she would be completely miscast.

  • GossipGirl

    @Megan: You are a liar.

  • catdog

    Why? If you are going to criticize at least explain the reason.
    I didn’t read the book but i think the plot sounds interesting.

  • Megan

    No Im not. Believe it or not celebrities are not incubated in glass until they are ready to be seen by the world. She was a bully. A really really mean girl. Im just surprised no one else can see it. Whatever though, I mean her true colors will show up sooner or later.

  • bo

  • Joboots

  • Megan

    @Joboots: wow. you are such a kind person. So sweet. You defend a person you have never even met before and you rip apart another person who actually did.

  • Emma


    I’m not saying that what you’re saying isn’t true. If you have yearbook pictures of her in you school, post them up and give us a link to it. I say tell it like it is but show proof.

  • keshaluv

    i totally agree with megan, if you watched her jimmy falon interview she is a total cunt, mean to him and that is on TV, just think what she is like off camera.

  • paige

    She has such a creepy smile. She’s only hot when you see her full body. Her face is derpy.

  • ColinG

  • R

  • R

  • YOLO

    It’s a silly world, she got more roles after the hunger games more than she got after her oscar nom..

  • A.

    YES!!….this is great news I loved The Glass Castle (it’s emotionally draining, very sad at times but Walls has such a great outlook on life and is not angry towards her parents) Jennifer Lawrence would be PERFECTION in the roll…she’s awesome. Btw, LOVE that Calvin Klein dress on Lawrence…soooo pretty, girl’s gorgeous!!.

  • Joboots


    Excuse me????

  • TinTin

    Hunger games is not a great film, is a good movie. I appreciate pensioro of this review:
    is correct!

  • Dawn

    I read the book for school, and wasn’t really that into it and I love books and try not to judge them before I read them but I just could not read this book. I found it slightly appalling, and put off reading it any chance I got… I think if Jennifer was in it I would go see the movie but other wise I wouldn’t…
