The past few years have been very busy for Hollywood’s “It” girl Jennifer Lawrence. She is currently headlining “Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. The sequel to last year’s very successful “Hunger Games”. In between getting an Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” she has is booked until 2015. She has seven films in all stages of production. They include familiar sequels and a few surprises and reunions.
In a short period of time Jennifer Lawrence has proven herself more than just a pretty face. When the “Hunger Games” first came out she was a relative unknown. She made the character of Katniss come alive. Fans of the book were very satisfied with her portrayal. It’s really hard to imagine anyone other than Lawrence playing that role. That is how she approaches her roles. That is her specialty and she does very well.
Jennifer Lawrence is currently filming Dumb and Dumber To, a comedy that put Jim Carrey and the Farrelly brothers on the map. The movie picks up twenty years after the movie. I think that this role will really highlight her comedic chops. She showed a hint of it in “Silver Linings Playbook”. Lawrence is also in sequel mode with “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. She reprises her role of Mystique a.k.a. Raven. She will be filming third and fourth installments of “The Hunger Games” alone are going to keep our girl pretty busy.
A treat is installed for her fans because in the film “Serena”, Lawrence once again reunites with her co-star from “Silver Linings Playbook”, actor Bradley Cooper. The film is a period drama set in the depression-era. She plays the wife of George Pemberton, played by Cooper. Pemberton is building a timber empire and learns his wife, Serena is barren. The duo are teamed up also for the film, “American Hustle” which involves con men and the FBI. This film is slated to be released on Christmas day. Maybe, Oscar will be calling on their door once again; time will tell.
We are pretty sure the Academy Awards is waiting to see what surprises she has for us. Lucky for us we don’t have to wait too long, as for now, Jennifer Lawrence is probably at a theater near you.
