Since being nominated for an Academy Award at the age of 20, Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t lacked for work offers. She landed the Hunger Games trilogy and the role of Mystique in the latest X-Men installment; now she’s hard at work on Serena, based on Ron Rash‘s 2008 novel of the same name. (read our review) Though the film shares the same Appalachian setting as The Hunger Games, production has started in Prague, where the below shot of Lawrence and her co-star Bradley Cooper, were taken.
Cooper plays Serena’s husband, George Pemberton, a wealthy lumber baron. The two return to their rural North Carolina town as newlyweds, but he soon realizes his beautiful bride has a ruthless side. As our reviewer put it, “the Pembertons do not shy away from violence. Instead, they embrace it and use it to their advantage at every turn.”
Should be interesting to see Lawrence play the bad girl instead of the hero. Are you looking forward to seeing Serena on the big screen?
