Jennifer Lawrence - Jennifer Lawrence for The Rules of Inheritance

Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in and produce 'The Rules of Inheritance'.

The Oscar-winning actress will reunite with her 'Serena' director Susanne Bier for a new drama about a young woman who loses her family and embarks on a journey of self discovery.

The script was written by 'The Iron Lady' screenwriter Abi Morgan based on Claire Bidwell Smith's memoir of the same name.

The film, which is being financed and distributed by FilmNation, will be produced by Lawrence and 'Silver Linings Playbook' producer Bruce Cohen.

FilmNation's Glen Basner and Aaron Ryder said, ''We are thrilled to be working with the dream team of Jennifer Lawrence, Susanne Bier, Abi Morgan and Bruce Cohen. We have no doubt that this inspirational and hopeful book will be turned into an emotionally powerful movie that audiences around the world will fall in love with.''

Cohen added: ''Jennifer, Susanne, Abi and I are incredibly excited to be working on this extraordinary project together. We all believe this film can strike a deeply resonant chord with audiences, just as Claire's riveting memoir has.''

Lawrence stars opposite 'Silver Linings Playbook' co-star in 'Serena', which is due for release later this year, and they are set to work together a third time on 'American Hustle', which reunites them with Oscar-nominated 'Playbook' director David O'Russell.

The actress is currently filming superhero flick 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', reprising her role as blue mutant Mystique.
