Jennifer Lawrence has parted ways with The Rosie Project, Sony’s romantic dramedy about a professor whose scientific approach to finding the perfect mate goes awry when he meets an unsuitable but intriguing woman.
Lawrence had boarded the project in July.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Boyhood helmer Richard Linklater remains attached to direct the film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Graeme Simsion. Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber (500 Days of Summer) wrote the screenplay. The studio will move quickly to recast the role.
Although Lawrence won’t be seen in Rosie, she may have already found her next project. EW has confirmed that the actress is in talks to appear in Noah director Darren Aronofsky’s next movie, an untitled independent drama. Variety first reported the news.
Lawrence, 25, has kept a very busy schedule of late. Her upcoming films include the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Joy, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Passengers.
Earlier Tuesday, she also published a pointed essay adressing gender pay inequality and sexism in Hollywood. “I’m over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable!” she wrote. “F–k that.”
