First Look! Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper Are Newlyweds in ‘Serena’
In addition to The Hunger Games and its sequel Catching Fire, the latest X-Men film, and horror flick The House at the End of the Street, the 22-year-old actress will appear in the drama, Serena, alongside The Hangover’s Bradley Cooper, and now we’re getting a sneak peek.
Dressed in their finest 1920s attire, these two look like a happily married couple, but as their story unfolds, it will be revealed that they’re anything but.
According to Collider.com, the plot is as follows:
“The film follows newlyweds George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence) who travel from Boston to the mountains of North Carolina where they begin to build a timber empire in 1929. Serena soon shows herself to be the equal of any man: overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. Together, this king and queen rule their dominion, killing or vanquishing all who stand in the way of their ambitions. But when Serena learns that she can never bear a child, she sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son before his marriage. And when she starts to suspect that George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertons’ intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning.”
Sounds pretty intense! It’s expected to hit theaters in 2013.
Also, this is won’t be the only big screen project where Jen and Bradley, 37, will appear together.
They will also be sharing the screen for the upcoming film The Silver Linings Playbook. In it, B-Coops plays a man who has been in a mental institution for four years, and upon his release, must reconnect with his ex-wife. That is scheduled to hit theaters in November of this year.
