Do you have that one book where you are so attached to it that if they ever made it into a film you want to be perfect?
That book for me is “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls. It hits on all too personal level for me.
And now I’ve heard Jennifer Lawrence is going to star in its adaptation.
I don’t like this.
I’ve only liked Lawrence in the The Hunger Games, and didn’t think she was inspiring in X-Men: First Class, and have almost flat-out refused to see any of her other films.
But the thing with The Glass Castle is that I think it would be better if the protagonist were played by an unknown. There’s a lot to the role, and while Lawrence plays it well as Katniss, I don’t want her to be pigeon-holed into the survivalist characters.
This is just upsetting.
