Hunger Games reunion as Jennifer Lawrence and Gary Ross team on East of Eden remake

Hunger Games reunion as Jennifer Lawrence and Gary Ross team on East of Eden remake

“Hunger Games” director Gary Ross is set to team with starlet Jennifer Lawrence to develop the adaptation of John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden” according to THR.

Although details are yet to be confirmed, it looks like Ross will sign on as director with Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment to produce the flick. It is likely that Lawrence will be involved in a starring role.

Universal Picture is behind the movie, having just finalized a deal with Steinbeck’s estate.

Ross and Lawrence together helped Lionsgate’s adaptation of “The Hunger Games” reach lofty box-office heights in 2012. Although some fans were critical of Ross’ use of “shaky” camera techniques to depict Katniss’ (Lawrence) time in the Hunger Games arena, comments on the film were largely positive, especially by fans of the novel.

More news on “East of Eden” to come.
