Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook

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.)
