EXCLUSIVE Jennifer Lawrence is picking up a machine gun and a beret for her next project. I’m told that Lawrence, now a four time Oscar nominee, will play Patty Hearst in a new feature film.
The screenplay is from Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, whose “People vs. O.J. Simpson” is about to hit big time on F/X.
Lawrence, I’m told, may also produce. No director is mentioned in the word around town, but honestly, her pal David O. Russell would be perfect for this. And Bradley Cooper could play the boyfriend Steven Weed who got Patty into the Symbionese Liberation Army and named her Tanya.
This would be a new take on the story for film. Paul Schrader made an excellent movie in 1988 starring the late great Natasha Richardson as Patty.
