Jennifer Lawrence Circling The Glass Castle

Actress  Jennifer Lawrence of "The Hunger Games" (Los Juegos del Hambre) attends an event with fans at Capitol cinema on March 26, 2012 in Madrid, Spain.

How's it hanging with gifted archer and all-around excellent person Jennifer Lawrence? Well, she has some new friends to make on the Catching Fire set, as soon as that starts filming, and she's also newly in talks for a side project: an adaptation of Jeannette Walls's The Glass Castle. Lionsgate just acquired the rights to the 2005 memoir about Walls's turbulent childhood and colorfully negligent parents; Lawrence would star. Absent family, hard-knock circumstances, and based on a best-selling book: Yup, this sounds like a J-Law project to us.
