Jennifer Lawrence to Star in Paolo Sorrentino's 'Mob Girl'.

Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in Makeready's adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Teresa Carpenter true-crime story "Mob Girl".

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.

Lawrence will produce along with Justine Polsky via their production company, Excellent Cadaver. The company is teaming with Universal-backed indie studio Makeready, which is also backed by Entertainment One and headed up by former New Regency president and CEO Brad Weston. Sorrentino will also produce alongside Wildside's Lorenzo Mieli ("My Brilliant Friend"). Producer and writer Angelina Burnett has been tapped to adapt the script.
