With the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises filling out her summer blockbuster quota for the foreseeable future, actress Jennifer Lawrence is eyeing some pretty sought-after dramatic roles to bolster her resume. And in her latest move in that direction, Deadline is reporting that Lawrence is in talks for the lead in the upcoming adaptation of the best-selling memoir by gossip columnist Jeanette Walls, titled The Glass Castle.

The memoir deals with Walls’ traumatic upbringing, and how she dealt with poverty and abuse growing up due to her parents’ troubles with addiction and poor decision making. The book spent 261 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list, and garnered intense critical praise.

The movie will be set up at Lionsgate, which is also home to Lawrence’s Hunger Games franchise, and will be produced by The Blind Side’s Gil Netter. There are no details on a release date or director yet, but Marti Noxon is attached to write the script.
