Lawrence will play the lead in the new project, penned by Argo writer Chris Terrio, according to Deadline.

The film will tell the apparently true story of oil tycoon Ernest Marland, who loses his empire after being caught in an affair.

Producers Todd Black and Steve Tisch said of the casting in a statement: "Jennifer was basically asked to play 4 personalities [in Silver Linings Playbook]... and did them all brilliantly. After seeing that performance we knew we had our anchor for Ends Of The Earth.

"Her dedication to the craft and all those who work with her is inspiring and if she is the future of our business we are certainly in good hands."

The film will be Lawrence's third collaboration with Russell. She is already setto reunite with Russell and Bradley Cooper in an as-yet-untitled political drama.
