Jennifer Lawrence and Francis Lawrence have worked together on three of the four films in THE HUNGER GAMES franchise and according to Deadline, that relationship could very well continue with RED SPARROW, an adaptation of the Jason Matthew novel of the same name. Jennifer Lawrence is said to be "orbiting" the film and in talks for the role of Dominika Egorova, a Russian intelligence officer ordered against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress.

A synopsis of Jason Matthew's "Red Sparrow":

State intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the cast-iron bureaucracy of post-Soviet intelligence. Drafted against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress in the service, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and, inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America’s most valuable mole in Moscow. Seeking revenge against her soulless masters, Dominika begins a fateful double life, recruited by the CIA to ferret out a high-level traitor in Washington; hunt down a Russian illegal buried deep in the US military and, against all odds, to return to Moscow as the new-generation penetration of Putin’s intelligence service. Dominika and Nathaniel’s impossible love affair and twisted spy game come to a deadly conclusion in the shocking climax of this electrifying, up-to-the minute spy thriller

The spy genre is enjoying a bit of a resurgence with KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE and THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. having already opened this year and SPECTRE and BOURNE 5 on the way, so the time is ripe for a kick-ass Russian spy film starring Jennifer Lawrence. Justin Haythe will be rewriting a script by AMERICAN HUSTLE's Eric Warren. Marvel, you'd better get going on your Black Widow film before Fox shows you up. Jennifer Lawrence is one of the busiest actresses out there; she's got THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 2 on November 20, 2015, JOY on December 25, 2015, and will soon be starring in PASSENGERS with Chris Pratt.

Amazing

J Law is a beautiful, wonderful actress, saw her in a Winter's Bone and I knew she was gonna be a star, just PLEASE, PLEASE, stay away from Amy Schumer, she's like the female super shitty unfunny version of Chris Farley (I LOVE Chris Farley). Stick with inspiring young Children and showing off your acting chops, tell Amy Schumer to F off.

They are actual friends in real life, so it's not likely that's gonna happen.

It's dumb we haven't gotten a solo Black Widow or at least a Black Widow/Hawkeye film in the same tone as the Bourne films. But as soon as I read the synopsis, I figured this would be comparable to what Marvel has been waiting to do with Black Widow.
