Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper must have had fun on the set of David O’Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook, as Vulture reports they’re planning to team up again for an adaptation of Ron Rash’s book Serena.
According to Vulture, ‘Serena takes place in 1929 North Carolina, where young newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton move to build a timber empire. Their ambition is all-consuming and dangerous – neither is afraid to kill or destroy anyone who opposes them – but they’re turned against each other when Serena finds she can’t bear children and then launches a deadly vendetta against her husband’s illegitimate son.’
It certainly sounds like there’ll be plenty of high drama.
An adaptation has been mooted for a couple of years, with Darren Aronofsky having previously sniffed around to direct and Angelina Jolie flirting with starring. Now Susanne Bier (Brothers, After The Wedding, In A Better World) will helm, with shooting set to begin soon.
