    Jennifer Lawrence will be playing mob girlfriend-turned FBI informant Arlyne Brickman next in Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino’s film Mob Girl, based on the eponymously named, Pulitzer Prize-winning true crime 1992 book by Teresa Carpenter. The film will follow Brickman’s beginnings to her dating various mobsters and her eventual turn on them after a loan shark threatened her daughter. She’ll also be producing the feature, while Angelina Burnett of The Americans pens the script. IMDb has this for 2020, but it probably won’t be out until 2021. With this, Burial Rites, Bad Blood, and Red, White, and Water all coming out in the next few years, she’s coming to steal another decade and replace Meryl at the Oscars, it is known. Now discuss.

    I love Jlaw, so don’t come for me Kellis, but in the same way that Meryl dominates baity roles for her age group, I wish some of Jen and Emma Stone’s peers could get a crack at some of these roles. But, nonetheless, she’ll be great. I bet she’ll have Oscar #2 by 35. 40 at the absolute latest

    Lol yeah I was thinking that I’d love to see Shailene Woodley in the role more (maybe Margot Robbie) but obviously I’m fine with J Law. I’m betting on Guadagnino’s Burial Rites for the Oscar win, so hopefully that happens before 35 or 40.

    I hope she reaches double digits noms and gets at least another win before 2030.

    Hey! It’s me, back with another angry, rain-on-your-parade take:

    Sorrentino is terrible, I truly wish just about any other contemporary Italian filmmaker was getting at least half the attention he receives in America.

    Jennifer Lawrence churns out brilliant performances when she’s able to tap into her raw abilities as an actress. The fact that she’s branching outside the Russell tree allows her to grow more as an artist. “mother!” was the first step, and now that she’s collaborating with Guadagnino and Sorrentino, her future is looking brighter than ever.

    I think it has to do more with the fact that Lawrence and Stone are typically more “adventurous” actresses than their peers. You could also add Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, and even Kristen Stewart to the list.

    They appear more adventurous than others because they’re given way too many opportunities. Someone mentioned Woodley…that young woman is under-used just like Margot Robbie before I, Tonya happened. Brie Larson too…she’s clearly having one of the worst post Oscar careers in recent time.

     

    Ronan looks like the most overused though

    Taron Egerton (Rocketman) for best actor. Charlize Theron looks great in Bombshell teaser

    why? She’s not that good to get nominated every year

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>It’s not like there is an entire drought of female roles in the industry. Lawrence, Stone, and the like frequently have career opportunities simply because they scavenge for it. Not that I am saying their celebrity status and box-office power are not privileges on their own, but clearly these actresses have been on-the-run for meaty material.</p>
    Let’s also not act like Jennifer Lawrence herself had these much roles when she was at her it-girl peak. She basically started expanding when The Hunger Games ended. The only roles she ever got were from David O. Russell, and we all know how much he keeps in touch with his collaborators.

    With regards to Woodley and Larson, they both have very specific career trajectories that cannot easily be defined by conflict of underutilization. Woodley, before being the bona fide star of 2014, had worked with some of the best independent filmmakers, such as Alexander Payne and Gregg Araki. But then, after leading the semi-successful “Divergent”, she kind of got fatigued by success. Afterwards, Woodley became so selective with her roles and only began loving acting again when she starred in “Big Little Lies”.

    Brie Larson is literally Captain Marvez which is like the most sucessful female-led film in history. Just because she doesn’t prefer working with certified auteurs doesn’t mean she has a terrible post-Oscar career. Give her some time to return to critical acclaim glory, Larson herself has waited for so long before being the star that she is today.
