Jennifer Lawrence Eyes Father-Daughter Love Story

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.

In her breakout films, like Winter's Bone and The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence tended to go fatherless, but she's attached herself to a new project with plenty of questionable family bonding. Variety is reporting that Lawrence plans to topline The Ends of the Earth, a fact-based, twenties-set drama about the romantic affair between Lydie Marland and her oil baron uncle Ernest Marland, who adopted Lydie as his own daughter. Peeta would be scandalized!
