Jennifer Lawrence circling Oliver Stone's Savages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
After Jennifer Lawrence‘s break-out performance in WINTER’S BONE (which was pretty amazing), she has been getting offers for really good films ever since. Right now, the Academy Award nominated actress is in early negotiations to star in Oliver Stone’s upcoming film SAVAGES. The film is an adaptation of the novel by Don Winslow. It follows two best friends who have started their own pot growing business in Laguna Beach and they are in a love triangle with a girl named O (Lawrence). They live a somewhat peaceful exisistence until a Mexican drug cartel enforcer comes in to try and run them out of business. There are a couple of actors you may have heard of that are being courted for the above roles, they are: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, James Franco, Garrett Hedlund, Aaron Johnson and Benicio Del Toro for the role of enforcer. Shooting is set to start in June so look for casting news soon.
This sounds pretty promising and I’d love to see DiCaprio and Hardy re-team, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
