Actress Jennifer Lawrence will next be seen in romantic drama The Rosie Project, reports variety.com.
Based on the Graeme Simsion novel of the same name, the film centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science based survey to find the perfect mate, only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman played by the Serena actress, who possesses the opposite qualities.
Writer-producer duo Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who also teamed up for 500 Days of Summer have revised the author's adaptation of the novel.
In Mr Simsion's story, the protagonist designs the 'Wife Project' to find his perfect partner through a 16-page survey to filter out drinkers, smokers and late arrivers, all characteristics possessed by the titular Rosie Jarman.
The professor becomes intrigued by Rosie's own quest to identify her biological father, leading to an unlikely relationship as they collaborate on 'The Father Project'.
Sony is currently seeking a director for the film.
The Lego Movie co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested but have opted to take on Disney's Star Wars standalone movie, which will focus on the character of Han Solo.
Sony acquired the film rights to The Rosie Project last year and set it up with Sony based producers Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan.
The Silver Linings Playbook actress Lawrence will also be seen in the final Hunger Games film, Mockingjay - Part 2, which opens November 20, and in Fox's drama Joy, which launches on Christmas Day.
Currently she is busy with the pre-production of Sony's sci-fi romance Passengers which also stars Chris Pratt.
