People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and Brie Larson may find that out if rumors are true.
The actress is in talks to take over the lead role in the upcoming biopic The Glass Castle which is based on the memoir from Jeannette Walls, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The role was originally Jennifer Lawrence’s but she dropped out back in 2013 and the film had hit a bit of a roadblock until recently.
Wall’s memoir tells of her upbringing in a dysfunctional family. The family’s life is full of imagination and adventure but also instability. With an alcoholic father and “eccentric” mother, the group is always on the move whenever their money and/or luck run out.
Even though Larson’s name is being bandied about she has quite the full slate ahead of her already. The actress is currently ready to set sail to Kong: Skull Island and is also signed on to play Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes.
If she does decide to fit this into her rapidly growing schedule it would reunite her with Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton.
Larson has been hitting homeruns all over the place this year with a phenomenal supporting role in Trainwreck and Oscar buzz with her upcoming drama Room.
