Jennifer Lawrence joins The Rosie Project from Sony Pictures
Sony Pictures has signed Jennifer Lawrence to the studios’ upcoming film “The Rosie Project.” The story is based on the novel written by Graeme Simsion, which tells the story of a genetics professor on a quest for love.
This quest involves a carefully designed survey to find the perfect match. The professor’s methodology is put into question however when he meets Rosie Jarman, a woman that he falls for that has none of the initial qualities that he was looking for.
Writing the adaptation for Sony are Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, the same team that brought (500) Days of Summer to the big-screen. The film still doesn’t have a director but with Jennifer Lawrence on board finding one might prove to be easier.
Lawrence just wrapped her appearance at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where Lionsgate hosted a panel with Lawrence, Hutchinson, Hemsworth and other members of the cast and crew of “The Hunger Games.” This will be the final planned visit for the cast of the long-running franchise, “The Hunger Games: Mockingly Part 2” is the final installment planned for the current cast.
Producing the film are Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan.
