As we say our goodbyes to Katniss… WHAT the hell is next for J-LAW?


Jennifer Lawrence has had a pretty impressive run since she took up the baton of the Mockingjay in the formidable Hunger Games series.

Yep, our girl has been on quite the journey since she first hit our screens as our ultimate girl crush, Katniss Everdeen.

Not only has she gone and swooped up an Oscar during her five years working on the series but she has also been named entertainer of the year by Entertainment Weekly, is nabbing character roles ten years her senior and is apparently worth more than any other actress of Hollywood.

Yeah, she’s pretty hot right now.

And just when you thought she could not get any cooler, she has gone and found herself a squad to rival Taylor's, has continuously killed it on the red carpet and still manages to remain her HILARIOUS self. 

Now that the Hunger Games has reached its inevitable conclusion and the press stints are drawing to a close, surely Jen is going to have a lot of free time on her hands. So what is next for the rising star?

1) Joy

Jen will be straight back out doing press after Christmas for her next film, Joy, where she is once again joined by her ultimate on screen beau, Bradley Cooper as well as cinematic royalty, Robert de Niro.  

The film is a biographical comedy-drama following Joy Mangano, a single mother of three who throughout four generations builds her own business empire after creating the ‘miracle mop.’

2) X-Men: Apocalypse

Jennifer will also be reprising her role as Mystique in the next instalment of the X-men series due for release in the Spring.

3) Passengers

Little is yet known about this project, except that it will be a sci-fi drama and Jen will co-star opposite Chris Pratt and Michael Sheen. 

The story follows a spacecraft bringing thousands of hibernating people to a faraway planet. One passenger has a problem in his sleep chamber and he decides to wake up another sleeper,  instead of spending the next 60 years on board alone.

We will have to wait until the end of next year for this one folks! 

4) Writing

And of course Jennifer wants to expand her talents off screen. J-Law is working with her BFF Amy Schumer and Amy’s sister, Kim, on a comedy screenplay.

"They are the funniest motherf—kers that ever lived. They're brilliant writers, too. And fast! The script is pretty much good to go. We work really well together—it's been the most fun thing ever! All I do is laugh."

It is safe to say we are LIVING for that movie.
