Jennifer Lawrence will produce new drama 'The Glass Castle', which she was previously linked to in a starring role.
Jennifer Lawrence will produce 'The Glass Castle'.
The Oscar-winning actress was previously expected to play Jeanette Walls in a film adaptation of her best-selling 2005 memoir, and she has now confirmed she is producing the project, too.
She said: ''I don't know if I will be any good, but I'm trying it. So far I am not sure if I am because I am very instinctual, but not very verbal. But producing is something that I have really wanted to do.''
The actress says she was drawn to the story - which chronicles Walls' dysfunctional upbringing with an eccentric artist mother and alcoholic father - after her mother read the book and urged her to do the same.
She said: ''My mother is like the lucky charm with these kinds of things. She read 'Winter's Bone' and 'Hunger Games' and when I read 'The Glass Castle' I thought it was amazing, so we found Gil Netter, the producer who had the rights to [the book]. He and I started talking and now we are developing. We have a director and a writer and it's getting going.''
'The Glass Castle' will be directed by Destin Cretton and the original screenplay was written by Marti Noxon.
