Jennifer Lawrence: actress, Academy Award winner, style icon, BFF to Amy Schumer, and...reigning queen of the biopic? E! News confirms that the Oscar-nominated Joy actress has just landed, shocker, yet another coveted big screen role in Sony Pictures' upcoming Fidel Castro biopic Marita.

The film will detail the life of Fidel Castro's former lover and the film's namesake, 19-year-old Marita Lorenz, who was impregnated by the leader, underwent an abortion and—talk about plot-twists—was then enlisted by the CIA to assassinate her lover after joining anti-communist movements in the U.S. During her lifetime, Marita also testified before the United States Congress, claiming to have observed a plot between the CIA, Cuban operatives and Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate former president John F. Kennedy, Jr.! Talk about made for the big screen.

Perhaps the role will lead to another Oscar nod; at age 25, Jennifer has been nominated four times, more than any other actor her age. She walked away with the gold once, in 2013 for Silver Linings Playbook.

What's the saying? Good things come to those who hustle? Which reminds us, the upcoming gig will also serve as a reunion of sorts between her and American Hustle writer Eric Warren Singer. You know, the critically-acclaimed mob-meets-spy pic in which Jennifer also impressed as the film's leading femme fatale.

And as if J.Law's acting chops weren't impressive enough already, she is also set to act as one of the upcoming film's producers. No shade to you, Adele, but 25 has never looked better. In addition to Jennifer, Matt Tolmach, Scott Mednick and Andre Rouleau will also produce.
