Warner Bros. has bagged the rights to Lynsey Addario's memoir, It's What I Do, about her Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalism, Deadline reports. The deal — which reportedly had Reese Witherspoon, Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman, and the Weinstein Company, among other suitors, knocking at the door — has Steven Spielberg helming and Jennifer Lawrence starring. The latter Oscar-winning badass will play Addario, a combat journalist who, in the face of danger and kidnappings, captured unforgettable imagery from such war-torn areas as Libya, Afghanistan, and the Congo. (If you're already having stress daydreams about the imminent American Sniper–esque trailer for this, you're probably not alone.)
