Before The Hunger Games, the names Jennifer Lawrence and Gary Ross carried weight in Hollywood. But after the film made $400 million domestic, each got significantly bigger. So big in fact each can now pick and choose projects at will. Ross decided not to continue with the franchise, while Lawrence took that popularity to the Oscars. Soon they’ll find their way back together in not one, but two adaptations, including one of an American classic.
First up, the Oscar-winning actress and Oscar-nominated director are set to reteam on East of Eden, based on the John Steinbeck novel. (Which was previously adapted into a film starring James Dean.) Universal will distribute and Brian Grazer‘s Imagine Entertainment will produce. After that, a pitch is soon to be sold for Lawrence and Ross to team up for Burial Rites, based on a novel by Hannah Kent. Read more about each below.

Lionsgate has been very careful in marketing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Seemingly every piece of video or image that’s been released has hid a simple fact. A simple fact a new banner finally confirms without a shadow of a doubt.
You see (spoiler for the first film), Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) won the 74th annual Hunger Games at the end of the last movie. And it’s established in that film that winners are free to enjoy life’s wonderful spoils for the rest of their days, right? But in this new banner, as well as several posters that have been released, you see a lot of older characters referred to as “Victors.” And they’re all holding weapons. I won’t come out and say it above the jump but, the second half of Francis Lawrence‘s film should be pretty clear from that info. Check out an epic banner featuring all the victors below. Read More »
