The Glass Castle seems like a sob story version of Captain Fantastic — except it’s based on a true story.

The 2013 indie film Short Term 12 launched Brie Larson’s career in a big way, and in the relatively quick time since then, she’s starred in a major studio comedy (Trainwreck), a massive Hollywood monster movie (Kong: Skull Island), and snagged the lead role in an upcoming Marvel superhero film. And don’t forget about that Best Actress Oscar she won for her work in Room.
Things have been a lot quieter for Short Term 12’s director, Destin Daniel Cretton, who hasn’t directed a movie since. But he’s reunited with his old collaborator for a new movie, and the first trailer has just arrived. Check out the first trailer for The Glass Castle below.

Lionsgate Stays in the Jennifer Lawrence Business, Has Actress in Talks For Gossip Columnist Memoir Adaptation
Posted on Monday, April 23rd, 2012 by Russ Fischer
Jennifer Lawrence is a very good actress, and she’s starting to have a certain market cornered: the Appalachian girl who is stronger than anyone suspects, and who comes into her own thanks to the imposition of an unexpected, exaggerated personal adversity. A grounded version of that character is at the center of Winter’s Bone, and the more fantastic version is the heroine of The Hunger Games.
Now Lionsgate, the studio which just enjoyed The Hunger Games being number one at the box office for a month straight, has Lawrence in talk for a film that will see her playing an oddly similar character. The film is an adaptation of The Glass Castle: A Memoir, in which columnist Jeannette Walls tells her unusual childhood story. Read More »
