So apparently Jennifer Lawrence will be in the remake of East of Eden. Universal acquired the rights to the adaptation back in 2004 after the book was chosen for Oprah's Book Club...
Rumor has it they are look at her to play Cathy in the upcoming movie...
Basically the plot of the book is loosely based on the
Biblical tale of Cain and Abel...It kinda follows two families over the
course of a generation and is set in California's Salinas Valley
pre-World War I.
We had to read this in high school and our teacher showed the 1950s movie after reading the book... I personally don't remember too much about it so (For more info on the book check out http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/eastofeden/summary.html)
I just thought this was kinda odd that Jennifer is taking this on as I thought they would be filming Hunger Games: Mockingjay as Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is premiering in London November 11.
Oh well, best of luck to her and here's hoping Mockingjay doesn't take a back burner to this :)
