According to Collider, Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell read the roles of Daisy and 'Six Horse Judy' respectively during the live-read of the script. It's unknown how much work Lawrence needs to do on Mockinjay - Part 2 though the main scheduling clash may involve David O.

The Hateful Eight is a hugely interesting project for fans of Tarantino. Though subject to change, the synopsis from the script read was: 

"The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere."

Should Jennifer Lawrence sign on, she could join the likes of Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen and Samuel L. Jackson, all of whom have been linked to the project in recent months.
