Jennifer Lawrence to Play Fidel Castro's Lover in New Biopic

Jennifer Lawrence has lined up her next movie project and she will be playing Marita Lorenz, the former lover of Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

The 25-year-old Oscar-winning actress will star in Dear Fidel, which has been written by Eric Warren Singer, the co-writer of her previous film American Hustle.

Dear Fidel follows Marita and “how in 1959 she met and began an affair with Cuban leader Fidel Castro when she was 19 years old. After becoming pregnant and having an abortion, Lorenz left Cuba and joined anti-communists in the US, getting recruited by the CIA for an assassination mission. In 1960, she returned to Cuba to carry out the mission but, according to lore, yielded to love,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
