Jennifer Lawrence is teaming up with the Call Me By Your Name director for the story of an Icelandic murderer in 1830.
Jennifer Lawrence has joined director Luca Guadagnino's Burial Rites, a true-crime drama about the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland, based on the book by Hannah Kent.
Inspired by a true story, Burial Rites is set in the final days of a young woman who has been accused of murder in Iceland in 1829.
Set against Iceland’s stark landscape, the planned film will tell the story of Agnes, who, charged with the brutal murder of her former master, is sent to an isolated farm to await execution.
