Jennifer Lawrence to Star in ‘Die, My Love’ from Lynne Ramsey

Last month, actress Jennifer Lawrence said that she was currently collaborating with director Lynne Ramsey on a secret project together. We now know what that project is, an adaptation of Die, My Love.

The film is based on the book of the same name written by Ariana Harwicz, with Martin Scorsese executive producing. Lawrence would star as the lead in the movie and teased in a recent interview with The New York Times that the book reads “like Sylvia Plath, especially because it’s about a woman suffering from postpartum and cycling into madness.”

No further details are known, but the book’s synopsis reads: “In a forgotten patch of French countryside, a woman is battling her demons: embracing exclusion yet wanting to belong, craving freedom whilst feeling trapped, yearning for family life but wanting to burn the entire house down. Given surprising leeway by her family for her increasingly erratic behavior, she nevertheless feels ever more stifled and repressed.”
