Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are busy people, and recently they’ve been busy doing things together, as the pair both star in two upcoming projects – David O’Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook and Susanne Bier’s Serena. The first pic from the latter has now shown up online, via FirstShowing, with the duo looking suitably as if they’ve just fallen out of the Great Depression, and Lawrence wearing something dead around her neck!
The film, based on Ron Rash’s book, takes place in 1929 North Carolina, where young newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton (Cooper and Lawrence) 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. No release date is yet set.
