Lawrence To Play Afghan War Veteran In Her Next

Jennifer Lawrence is set to play Afghanistan war veteran with a brain injury in upcoming movie, according to British newspaper Daily Mail report. 

The Oscar-winning star has joined forces with acclaimed theatre director Lila Neugebauer for an as-yet-untitled movie that will see her play the role of a US soldier who suffers a traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan, the report said.

Jennifer's on-screen character struggles to recover from her injuries upon her return home, according to Collider.

The Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook star is a producer on the project along with Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Justine Polsky with production set to begin in June in New Orleans.

Jennifer could star in the movie alongside Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry, who has already held discussions about taking on the role of the male lead.

Neugebauer's star has been rising with a number of feted Broadway and off-Broadway productions under her belt, including 2018's rendition of Kenneth Lonergan's The Waverly Gallery starring Elaine May and Lucas Hedges.  

Meanwhile, Jennifer revealed plans to take a career break back in 2017.

Announcing her hiatus two years ago, the Red Sparrow star said: 'I'm taking [a break]. I don't have anything set for two years.'

During her break, Jennifer actually got engaged to art gallery director Cooke Maroney.
