Lawrence stars in pic for Weinsteins, Escape Artists

David O. Russell plans to reteam with “Silver Linings Playbook” star Jennifer Lawrence on drama “The Ends of the Earth” for the Weinstein Co. and Escape Artists.

“Argo” scribe Chris Terrio penned the script; Todd Black, Steve Tisch and Jason Blumenthal will produce. Pic revolves around a controversial love affair between an oil baron and his adopted daughter, which destroys the empire they built together.

The CAA-repped Russell is about to go into production on an untitled thriller starring Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale. Lawrence, also repped by CAA, has been attached to the project since this summer.
