26th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards - Red Carpet

The world's biggest actress and the world's biggest director are teaming up for a new movie.

Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg will collaborate on an adaptation of "It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life Of Love And War," the memoir of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario. Lawrence will star as Addario, whose book describes her work in some of the most dangerous regions of the world, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur, the Congo, and Libya, and her capture by pro-Quaddafi forces in the latter country.

According to Deadline's report, the recently-released "It's What I Do" was a hot commodity in Hollywood when its rights became available, and several other star-studded teams were vying for the property. Lawrence and Spielberg reportedly beat out the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Margot Robbie, George Clooney, and the team of Darren Aronofsky and Natalie Portman for the project.

Warner Bros. is set to distribute the film. No other details about casting or production have been revealed so far.
