August 7th, 2012

Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly being lined up to star in 'The Ends of the Earth'.

'The Hunger Games' star in talks to appear in The Weinstein Company's romantic drama as American socialite Lydie Marland who caused controversy when she married her adopted father, oil baron E.W. Marland.

The Oscar-nominated actress is the top choice for this challenging role which sees Lydie's relationship with her father ultimately destroy the empire they built together, according to Variety.

Jennifer plays the educated, opinionated socialite who urges her husband to raise workers' wages and improves their access to medical care, earning her the nickname of ''princess of the prairies''.

Chris Terrio has written the script and Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will produce for Escape Artists.

There is no news as yet about who will play her 54-year-old husband.

The in-demand actress has a busy schedule filming sequels to popular movie franchises 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', but production is scheduled for next summer.

Fans can next see Jennifer opposite Bradley Cooper in 'Silver Linings Playbook', where she plays a confused girl who befriends a newly released mental patient.

She also stars alongside the Hollywood hunk in upcoming indie drama 'Serena'.
