Jennifer Lawrence chatted with Canoe over the weekend at TIFF to promote her new movie, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, and to also discuss how the Hunger Games has changed the roles she has been offered.
Did the Hunger Games mean a change in the roles you’ve been offered?
I didn’t really have any career expectations. I know that seems weird, but I’ve always been incredibly lucky, in that, the one script I read, that I fall in love with and I’m like, ‘I have to make this movie!’ or ‘I have to work with this director!’ — I’ve done it.
So that was such a rare, incredibly lucky thing that’s happened to me, that I wasn’t pining after these imaginary roles that I thought Hunger Games would satisfy. It was actually the opposite — I was afraid this one character would overpower the rest of my characters. But I genuinely liked the books and the movie and that character, and I wouldn’t be embarrassed to be known as that character for the rest of my life. Well, obviously, not only that character.

Sam Claflin (Finnick) is set to star in a new romantic comedy called Modern Life is Rubbish. It looks like production is in the process of casting a female lead.
Rising actor Sam Claflin is attached to star in Brit List rom-com Modern Life is Rubbish, which is due to shoot in the UK in early 2013.
Daniel Jerome Gill’s debut feature is written by Philip Gawthorne, who adapted the script from his award-winning play of the same name. Dominic Norris of Serotonin Films and Amanda Breheny of Rising Sun Productions produce.
The film charts a music-loving couple’s painful break up after ten years. As they complete the poignant process of separating their lives and music collections, the two recount their turbulent history.
The production is currently casting a female lead.
“It is a modern, funny, deeply-romantic tale that captures how music connects those key moments that define our lives,” Norris told Screen. “Both Dan & Phil are fresh talents that inject an original and stylish approach to this universal love story and Sam is a very talented young actor and makes the perfect leading man.”
It looks like Liam Hemsworth has joined his Catching Fire cast mates in Atlanta, GA! A lucky fan got to take a quick pic with Liam at the Atlantic Station. As you know, Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Sam Claflin, and probably many other Catching Fire cast members are already in Atlanta as well.read more
With filming right around the corner, Next Movie has complied a list of 5 Catching Fire scenes we might see being filmed!
Beachside Arena Sequences
Many of the arena sequences in the Third Quarter Quell‘s Games take place within the cover of the jungle, but there are also a few key moments in or near water. The beginning of the Games, for instance, are totally water-based. Some ocean scenes can be done in-studio, of course, but it’s not nearly as easy to conceal from the public eye a beach-side set (see the boat-line security Summit had to put together for the “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” set in Brazil, e.g.). So, there’s a chance we might get to see moments like when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) are all recovering from the poisonous gas section of the clock-style arena. Or when Johanna (Jena Malone) evacuates Wiress (Amanda Plummer) and Beetee from the blood rain segment. Hawaiians, get your cameras readied just in case you stumble across some action.
Tribute Parade Party
The “Hunger Games” tribute parade was shot in-studio, so the actual scene itself might be kept well under wraps, but that doesn’t mean we won’t catch a castmate or two meandering around the Atlanta area in costume, especially if the various parties and events of the book get any play in the movie. Goodness help us if we just so happen to catch an early glimpse of Finnick in his, well,revealing get-up during that scene! Go ahead and just start staking out that Georgia Dome for us, would ya?
Train Scenes and Visiting the Districts
In the beginning of the story, Katniss and Peeta are still victors, so they are sent to dutifully tour the districts of Panem (all the while dealing with the looming threat of President Snow’s watchful eye). One of the perks of working in Atlanta is that the city already has a modern monorail system in place, so perhaps locals will spot their trusty trains being used for the movie. All aboard!

Check out the final theatrical trailer for The Master, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Amy Adams. This movie releases on September 21, 2012, which is the same day Jennifer Lawrence’s House at the End of the Street releases!
HATES director Mark Tonderai sat down with MTV and to chat about the horror in House at the End of the Street, working with the horror genre, and Elisabeth Shue and Jennifer Lawrence’s strong relationship in the movie. Tonderai goes on to say that Jennifer could possibly be this generation’s Meryl Streep!
MTV: You made “House” before Jennifer landed “Hunger Games.” What was your experience like working with her? You already said you had this sense that big things were coming her way.
Tonderai: The truth is, I knew that from seeing “Winter’s Bone.” I saw that in London on a cold day and I remember thinking, “That’s the one that I want [for 'House'].” You need a really fantastic actress to get across these huge ideas. I knew she was special. And I knew it when we auditioned her. It was probably the last audition that she’s ever done. [Laughs] She came in and read for me, and just the way she read the words … actors don’t always have time to read the whole screenplay, they just read the sides. And I remember thinking, “Jesus, she’s just read this, right off the page, and it’s going right through me.” I said to her that she can be as good as she wants to be. In my mind, she can be this generation’s Meryl Streep. I seriously think she’s that good. She’s an incredible actress.
But for me, if I’m honest, all of that can be kind of irrelevant, in my book. You can have all of that talent but be a sh–person. In our industry, we attract sh–people. And she’s not. She has this real gratitude about doing what she does. She’s from a working class family and she knows there are people out there who work hard jobs. There are people sweeping the streets, nurses, people doing these really important jobs. She knows how lucky we are. I always gel with people like that. It’s an honor doing what we do. It’s a real privilege, it really is. Every day, we should be thanking the movie gods that we can do what we do. And she does that. You can sense that. She’s incredibly polite to everybody, it doesn’t matter who they are. I think she’s going to be huge. Well, she already is, but I think she’s going to get even bigger.

MTV also has a new exclusive clip from HATES! Check it out below:
Just 45 Minutes From Broadway with Jack Quaid, will open up in Los Angeles and New York City in October. Jack plays Danny in this screen adaptation. For more information, head on over to IMDB.
Henry Jaglom’s screen adaptation of “Just 45 Minutes from Broadway,” starring Tanna Frederick and Judd Nelson, will open in Los Angeles Oct. 3 and in New York Oct. 17.
The cast also features Diane Salinger, Jack Heller, David Proval, Julie Davis, Harriet Schock, Mary Crosby, Sabrina Jaglom, Simon Jaglom, Michael Emil, Linda Carson, Jack Quaid, Eliza Roberts, Peter Townend and Emily Alexander.
“Just 45 Minutes from Broadway,” according to press notes, is described as such: “Whether trodding the boards for paying audiences or performing at the kitchen table for her theatrical family (mother Diane Salinger, father Jack Heller, uncle David Proval, boarder Harriet Schock), the only place Pandora Isaacs (Tanna Frederick) has ever felt truly safe and entirely at home is onstage. Like so many actors she is not completely sure about the difference between real life and the theater and – as she willingly admits – she really doesn’t want to. Stinging from a recent romantic break-up, she retreats to the safety of her parents’ ramshackle upstate country house — just 45 minutes from Broadway— where her non-theatrical sister (Julie Davis) and her sister’s non-Jewish fiancé (Judd Nelson) are also arriving for the weekend and the family’s yearly Passover Seder, which is presided over by another uncle (Michael Emil). Family secrets, sibling rivalries and the possibility of true love as rare as a blue bullfrog all emerge, but at what cost?”
