Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Glass Castle’ Gains Momentum at Lionsgate

Lionsgate’s “The Glass Castle,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, is gaining momentum after two years in development.

The studio is in negotiations with a “major” actor for the drama, CEO Jon Feltheimer disclosed during the company’s conference call with analysts Friday as part of a discussion about upcoming projects.

Destin Cretton, director of “Short Term 12,” was attached a year ago to direct and rewrite the script with Andrew Lanham. Marti Noxon wrote the first draft of the adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ 2005 bestselling memoir.

The story follows a young girl raised in dysfunctional family with an eccentric artist mother and an alcoholic father. Lawrence is producing with Gil Netter.

Lawrence has been a key figure in Lionsgate’s success, with her first two “Hunger Games” films grossing over $1.6 billion worldwide and two impending “Mockingjay” sequels slated for November 2014 and 2015. Feltheimer said Friday that “Mockingjay – Part 1” should outperform “Catching Fire,” which grossed $865 million worldwide.

She’s also attached to the studio’s historical project “Burial Rites,” with “Hunger Games” helmer Gary Ross attached to direct.
