FilmNation’s EVP, Worldwide Production Allison Silver brought the project into FilmNation, which negotiated its deal with CAA.  CAA will also package the project and represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.

The project would be the first film Lawrence would produce who after a whirlwind 2012 with huge success at the box office with “The Hunger Games” and an Oscar on “Silver Linings Playbook,” Lawrence is now looking for a little more creative control on the projects she is involved in.

She can be seen next in Lionsgate’s “Catching Fire” and Sony’s “American Hustle.” She is repped by CAA and attorney’s Gretchen Rush and Steven Warren.
