Jennifer Lawrence


Jennifer Lawrence is making true crime dreams come true.

The actress has landed the lead role in the highly-anticipated adaptation of the true-crime story Mob Girl, written by Teresa Carpenter. In the film, she will play the infamous Arlyne Brickman of the Colombo crime family, who became an informant for the government and ultimately brought down the famous mob. It will follow Arlyne's humble beginnings in the crime-ridden streets of New York, before delving into the nitty gritty details of how she became one of the FBI's most valuable assets.

And not only will Jennifer play the fierce woman, but she is also slated to produce the film.
