‘Girl on fire’ is the nickname for Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen, but it’s just as apt for the actress who plays her, Jennifer Lawrence. As she continues to blaze through Hollywood, the 22-year-old Oscar-winner is set to take on a new role in movie-making: producing. Lawrence will star in and produce The Rules of Inheritance, EW has confirmed. Susanne Bier, who won an Oscar for her Danish film In a Better World, is set to direct.
The film is an adaptation of the memoir of the same name by Claire Bidwell Smith, about the hardships she went through when both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer when she was 14.
Producing alongside Lawrence will be Bruce Cohen, who worked with Lawrence on Silver Linings Playbook. Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady) is writing the script.
