Brie Larson Replaces Jennifer Lawrence in 'The Glass Castle'
The role was originally going to Jennifer, but she reportedly left the project after a male lead could not be secured, according to Variety.
The movie is based on the memoir written by Jeannette Walls about “a young girl who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads. Walls’ eccentric mother and alcoholic father would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.”
Brie is getting major Oscar buzz for her work in the upcoming movie Room and she will soon start shooting the King Kong prequel Kong: Skull Island.
