Lawrence in talks for Rules movie

Jennifer Lawrence could be set to star in and produce drama Rules Of Inheritance.

The Oscar-winning actress is in talks to take the lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Claire Bidwell Smith's memoir, reported Variety.

The coming-of-age story follows Claire as a teenager whose life changes after both her parents are diagnosed with cancer, and how she copes with the harsh reality by throwing herself into boys, alcohol and travelling to cities such as New York and Los Angeles.

Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier will direct from a screenplay written by Abi Morgan.

Jennifer, who won a best actress Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, has reunited with her co-star Bradley Cooper for two upcoming films - Serena and American Hustle.

The 22-year-old is also reprising her role as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, and her mutant alter-ego Mystique in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
