Lawrence moves into Glass Castle?

Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in The Glass Castle.

The Hunger Games starlet may take the lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle: A Memoir, which had a record-breaking stint on the New York Times best-seller list for a memoir, reported Deadline.

She is expected to portray the author, a gossip columnist who had a difficult childhood with her "dysfunctional but vibrant" family in the upcoming drama, which is being written by Marti Noxon.

The rights to the 2005 book were originally picked up by Paramount Pictures and Brad Pitt's Plan B productions, but it is thought that Lionsgate now has the rights.

Jennifer - who received an Oscar nomination for her performance in harrowing drama Winter's Bone - will next appear in thriller The House At The End Of The Street and David O Russell's adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook.

She is currently shooting period thriller Serena, and is expected to start filming The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, later this year before starting work on the follow-up to X-Men: First Class.
