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.

    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.

    Why? If you are going to criticize at least explain the reason.

    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.

    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.

    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!!.
