jlawJennifer Lawrence will star in a Zelda Fitzgerald biopic called Zelda. The Oscar-winning actress will take on the titular role.

Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter: “Based on a screenplay by Emma Frost (The White Queen), the story centers on Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his indispensable muse and fiercest competitor. Desperate to define herself through her own art, the film explores the question: Can love exist between creative equals?”

According to W Magazine, the story for this movie will come from Nancy Milford’s 1970 biography. Ron Howard has signed on as a producer; he may also serve as the director. At this point in time, no theatrical release date has been announced. (via IndieWire)
