BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Jennifer Lawrence will not only star in the upcoming film adaptation of Jeanette Walls’ 2005 best-selling memoir The Glass Castle, the project will also mark her first time as a producer.
“I don’t know if I will be any good, but I’m trying it,” Lawrence said of her new post. “So far I am not sure if I am because I am very instinctual, but not very verbal. But producing is something that I have really wanted to do.”
The actress attached herself to the adaptation after her mother, Karen Lawrence, fell in love with Walls’ story and suggested she read it.
The Glass Castle, which spent more than 335 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list, details Walls’ poor and dysfunctional upbringing as she is raised by an eccentric artist mother and alcoholic father.
