Jennifer Lawrence & Gary Ross Head EAST OF EDEN, Make Plans For BURIAL RITES
Two weeks ago it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence will soon reunite with her Hunger Games director Gary Ross for a new feature adaptation of East of Eden. Now, the duo is in talks for another project, Burial Rites, based on the novel by Hannah Kent.
Deadline reports that Lionsgate, which produced The Hunger Games, is in negotiations to pick up the Burial Rites package from Jennifer Lawrence, Gary Ross and Allison Shearmur, who was also an executive producer on The Hunger Games.
"Burial Rites" tells the story a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829 and who faces becoming the last woman to be publicly executed there. In the movie, the narrative centers on a tragic romance set against an endless Icelandic summer.
