It seems that Jennifer Lawrence can't get out of the woods. She made her name with a breakthrough performance in the Southern Gothic tinged "Winter's Bone," and is currently hunting children to the tune of major box office dollars in "The Hunger Games." And before she heads back to Panem, she's gonna get one non-blockbuster effort in the can.

It seems that Jennifer Lawrence can't get out of the woods. She made her name with a breakthrough performance in the Southern Gothic tinged "Winter's Bone," and is currently hunting children to the tune of major box office dollars in "The Hunger Games." And before she heads back to Panem, she's gonna get one non-blockbuster effort in the can.

Lensing has started on the Depression-era drama "Serena" with Susanne Bier at the helm, and a first look at Lawrence and her co-star Bradley Cooper has emerged. This is what they look like in old-timey clothes, and yeah, they look pretty damn good. Based on the novel by Ron Rash, the story centers on a man named George Pemberton (Cooper) and his new bride, Serena (Lawrence), as they set out to depression-era North Carolina to create a timber empire. Their successful, ruthless reign in the mountains becomes complicated when Serena discovers her inability to bear children, setting her on a vengeful path against George's illegitimate son. So yeah, pretty gritty fare. Fun fact: Darren Aronofsky and Angelina Jolie were once circling this, but that never came to pass.

Production is underway in Prague and while we wait for this, Bier has one movie already finished, the Pierce Brosnan led dramedy "All You Need Is Love" which we presume will pop up on the festival circuit later this year. [Collider]
