Before she pulls out her bow and arrow again for Catching Fire, Jennifer Lawrence is filming Serena with Bradley Cooper. In the film, Lawrence and Cooper play newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton, who head to the mountains of North Carolina to create a timber empire in 1929.
It shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for Lawrence, whose rattle-snake hunting and pelt-wearing Serena proves to be more than just a simple housewife, standing by her husband as they destroy anyone who gets in their way. When Serena learns she can never have children, she becomes determined to kill the woman who gave birth to George’s illegitimate son before he and Serena were married. Of course that idea doesn’t sit too well with George.
The movie, based on the 2009 novel of the same name, also stars Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans and is directed by Oscar-winner Susan Bier.
