It sounds like Jennifer Lawrence‘s upcoming film The Rosie Project may have found its director! According to Variety, Boyhood‘s Richard Linklater is being eyed by Sony to direct the 24-year-old Oscar winner.
The movie “centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.”
It is based on the novel by Graeme Simsion.
The Dude abided in Montreal on Friday as a group of performers led by Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Patton Oswalt revived the Coen brothers’ cult classic in front of a packed crowd, many of whom had queued for up to 10 hours for a ticket.
This Live Read was the latest in the seasonal series organised by director Jason Reitman in which an ersatz group of unprepared performers read aloud a classic script. Reitman has run the shows, mostly in Los Angeles, since 2011; he wrangles the cast and chips in with stage directions. It was a homecoming of sorts for the director, who was born here, and who returns as part of the annual Just For Laughs festival. That event’s general spirit of joie de vivre was a good match for the title Reitman picked; the two and a half hours flew by.
Fassbender and Oswalt played the Dude and his friend Walter, roles made famous by Jeff Bridges and John Goodman, while Lawrence took on Julianne Moore’s original part of Maude Lebowski. The rest of the group was fleshed out by Fassbender and Lawrence’s X-Men peers, in town to shoot the latest instalment, as well as by members of Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley ensemble.
– Events From 2015 > July 24th: ‘The Big Lebowski’ Script Live Read In Montreal
Forget the Oscars. The ever zany Jennifer Lawrence may have the role of a lifetime on her hands in Maude Lebowski. Lawrence has agreed to step into Maude’s “natural, zesty” shoes in Jason Reitman’s live reading of The Big Lebowski this Friday in Montreal. This revival of the Coen brothers’ classic stoner film contains quite the cast. JLaw is hopping into Julianne Moore’s shoes, and The Dude (lovingly immortalized by Jeff Bridges) will be played by Michael Fassbender. Other inspired casting choices include Olivia Munn as Tara Reid’s Bunny Lebowski and Patton Oswalt as John Goodman’s Walter. Those lucky enough to attend the live reading will witness this exchange between JLaw and Fassbender:
Maude Lebowski: Does the female form make you uncomfortable, Mr. Lebowski?
The Dude: Uh, is that what this is a picture of?
Maude Lebowski: In a sense, yes. My art has been commended as being strongly vaginal which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.
The Dude: Oh yeah?
Maude Lebowski: Yes, they don’t like hearing it and find it difficult to say whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson.
The Dude: Johnson?
Reitman is thrilled to have Lawrence on board. He says Fassbender talked up the Maude role to JLaw, who already wanted into the show.
I added a few pics of Jennifer on set of her new upcoming project: her last X-Men movie. Men: Apocalypse, where she play play the role of Raven / Mystique. Enjoy!

The Mockingjay trailer is here! The Mockingjay trailer is here! After weeks of Lionsgate teasing its fans mercilessly with tiny bits of movie propaganda (each crumb setting off its own Internet firestorm), the studio has finally unveiled two-and-a-half minutes of glorious advertising for the final chapter of the genuinely loved series.
You probably noticed there are two new beautiful layouts online: for the main site and gallery. Claudia did an amazing job designing them for me. She used pics of Jennifer arriving at the MET Gala 2015. You can check them out here.

Thanks to Claudia, I added scans of a huge X-Men article to the gallery. Jennifer stars in X-Men- Apocalypse (released in 2016) and the magazine gave us more information with an article. Also, a small article about Jennifer movie “Joy”. enJOY!

Jennifer Lawrence continued to put on an impressive display during her weekend at the Comic-Con International 2015 in California. The stunning actress showed off her enviable figure in Bardot style white mini dress as she attended the Entertainment Weekly celebration at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego.

The Oscar winner reunites with Bradley Cooper and director David O Russell for an awards-tipped comedy drama about a single mother turned entrepreneur. While Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper’s third film together, the period drama Serena, might have landed with a damp thud, Lawrence is hoping that another film with her co-star might bring her more Joy. It also helps that the fact-based comedy drama is directed by David O Russell, who brought the two together for Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, and puts Lawrence centre stage. The 24-year-old stars as Joy Mangeno, a single mother of three who becomes a successful businesswoman after inventing the Miracle Mop. Cooper stars as an executive at the Home Shopping Network who helps to give her product the boost it needs. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Isabella Rossellini and Virginia Madsen.
“It’s set [in] the 80s and 90s, but I’m going to take a different approach musically than I’ve ever taken before,” Russell told The Playlist last year. “I aspire to make an unexpected movie, both for myself and for Jennifer. It’s about a woman … what’s inside her.”
It’s already been touted as a major awards contender, and given Russell’s recent track record (his last three films have all been nominated for multiple Oscars), it’s a safe bet for inclusion.
Joy will be released on 25 December in the US and 1 January in the UK
She has admitted that her latest tattoo is pretty tame.
But embarrassingly for Jennifer Lawrence, the faint inking of the chemical formula for water, located on her hand, is also inaccurate.
The Silver Linings Playbook star explained: ‘I know that the two is high and in H2O the two is supposed to be low.’ Realising the mistake, Jen, 24, said lightheartedly: ‘I should have Googled it before I got it tattooed on my body forever’
The actress was talking to reporters at Comic-Con on Thursday and happily presented her right hand to show-off the tiny three-symbol inking while promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
‘I call this tattoo a watered down rebellion because it’s not like a real tattoo’ she joked.
The blonde beauty explained that the new body art was a bonding exercise with her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth and his family – who also got permanent markings.
‘I was like “Well I’m always gonna need to be hydrated, so I guess I should just get H2O on my hand”
‘It’s the colour of a scar, all natural so it’s literally the most unrebellious tattoo that anybody could ever get.’
I added tons of pics of Jennifer at Comic-Con International 2015, promoting MockingJay part 2 and X-Men this weekend. Check out albums and pictures below.

It’s been a busy week for Jennifer Lawrence, and following an incredible Thursday (July 9) at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, she headed over to “Conan” for a chat.
The “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” actress was lovely as she told of her encounter with Bill Murray, but the real excitement occurred when J Law treated Conan’s audience to a song.
O’Brien noted, “You sang a ballad for Mockingjay,” adding that it had gone to #1 on the charts. Lawrence replied, “Okay, first of all if I’d have gone, ‘Pfffft Hunger Games’ it would have reached number one. I could’ve gone [armpit fart], seriously. It wasn’t [down to] me.” From there, Jen, goaded by costars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, sang a section from “Believe” by Cher. Check the clip!
New pics were released after the Comic Con promotional video. I added tons of new material, which is based on the video I shared yesterday. If more details about the pics hit the web, check back here for the latest news. Thanks to AliKat for sharing these!
In the clip Jennifer stands regally, looking like quite the warrior in a crimson red suit and bellowing brown cape atop a sculpture of the District 12 salute, which has now become the symbol of the rebellion.The inadvertent leader of the rebellion is seen staring off camera at first, but then as it begins to pull back – and the battle music intensifies – she slowly turns her head to face it.
As the camera pans back viewers can see that Katniss is standing atop a massive stone sculpture of the now infamous District 12 salute, which has become the symbol of the rebellion.
