As you all probably know by now, Jennifer Lawrence is going to be on The Hunger Games soundtrack and MTV news caught up with T-Bone Burnett on his reactions to her vocal talent.
But that musical omission will be changing soon, as Burnett not only told MTV News that filmmakers will be releasing “Hunger Games” tuneage soon, but that one track will feature Lawrence herself.
“Yeah, we did,” Burnett said when we asked if Lawrence had recorded anything in the studio. “And it was beautiful. She did great. She’s singing great. Killer actor too.”
Burnett’s confirmation follows a blog post in June from the website of Echo Mountain Recording Studio in North Carolina, detailing Burnett’s in-studio work with Lawrence. The post has since been deleted and Lawrence’s musical contribution has not been confirmed. After our chat with Burnett on Tuesday at the “Big Lebowski” reunion in New York, though (spoiler alert), we know the 21-year-old actress in fact recorded “Rue’s Lullaby,” a song Katniss sings after Rue, a young tribute in the Games, is mortally wounded.
“Yeah, we did that. We recorded that,” Burnett said about “Rue’s Lullaby.” “And it’ll be coming out soon.”
Celebs.gather.com talks about Jennifer today as it is her 21st birthday and how she has rised to fame in only 12 months. Part of the article reads:
‘Most recently, fans have seen Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: First Class as Mystique. The young actress has several films in the works too. House at the End of the Street will be released, and next year she will appear in Hunger Games. She has been busy. Like Crazy premiered earlier this year as well.
This young, natural talent has certainly made a name for herself early. In fact, she is the second youngest person to ever be nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars, which is quite an honor for somebody who has never even taken an acting class.’
A website called Ain’t it Cool News spoke to director Drake Doremus, about his new movie, Like Crazy. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Sam, along side her The Beaver co-star Anton Yelchin.
The article reads:
‘Ain’t it cool news: And I see Jennifer Lawrence is in the film, which threw me for a second, because I’d just seen her and Anton in THE BEAVER. Does her character respresent the real world crashing in on this long-distance relationship?
DD: She is. In a way, she’s kind of a perfect girlfriend for him and kind of the perfect person and she embodies what we think he would want or what we think he’d be with, but in reality there are X factors that you can’t replace in a person. And she’s sort of the perfect girlfriend in a way, but there’s something about it that doesn’t give you everything you need, you know?
Ain’t it cool news: How soon after you saw her in WINTER’S BONE did you want her in your movie or did Anton recommend her?
DD: Right away! She was the perfect actress for this style of filmmaking, because she’s so committed to the moment and so grounded, and she is always doing what’s necessary–nothing more and nothing less, which is exactly what I like in a performance. She’s just magnificent, and I was very fortunate to be able to have her in the film.’
Back in 2010 Jennifer visited Bellewood Home for Children for a “Winter’s Bone” related Q&A with the children there. Sadly I wasn’t able to find a video with the Q&A but you can watch the appreciation video the people of Bellewood made for her here.
After releasing that Lionsgate will be making Catching Fire, the sequal to The Hunger Games which is second in the trilogy, Joe Drake (Co-COO of Lionsgate and President of the Motion Picture Group) had said this about The Hunger Games Trilogy.
“The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal. The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.”
So fingers crossed that they might make Mockingjay!
Lionsgate Publicityhas just announced the release date of Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games series. The date is November 22, 2013 and as Katniss is part of the book we’re sure Jennifer will be a part of the film!
Hi, my name is Sian and I will be helping out with the site.
I found this article a few days ago and it’s about Josh Hutcherson pranking Jennifer on the set of The Hunger Games.
“We have this fake dummy on set, this really gnarled-up scary-looking thing. The other day I put it in her bathroom in her trailer, and she told me she actually peed her pants, she was so scared. I’m sure she’s going to pay me back. I’m just terrified because she’s someone I can see taking it to the next level, and somebody could get hurt.”
I added in the gallery HD captures of Jennifer in “Like Crazy”. Not too much of her in this first trailer but I hope we’ll get a better look soon. I also added posters of the film. The official “Like Crazy” site is up and you can check it here.
Will post captures of the trailer later today, for now enjoy
Also we have some updates on The Silver Linings Playbook:
David O. Russell will round up an impressive cast to star in his next feature, an adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook. The details of who this will be exactly are still murky. Mark Wahlberg was ready to make this his fourth collaboration with Russell, but a delay in production created a scheduling conflict. Deadline believes Wahlberg is dropping out because of his commitment to Broken City.
On the positive side, the report confirms Jennifer Lawrence for the female lead — she reportedly beat out Elizabeth Banks, Kirsten Dunst, Blake Lively, Rooney Mara, Rachel McAdams, Andrea Riseborough, and Olivia Wilde for the sought-after role. In fact, it was Lawrence’s need to shoot The Hunger Games that delayed the schedule beyond Wahlberg’s availability. Bradley Cooper is resuming talks for the now-vacant role after he attached with Anne Hathaway in the early stages of development. New to the Playbook is Robert De Niro, in negotiations for a role that would the actor reunite with his Limitless co-star (and his would-be Uncharted director). There is no update on Angelina Jolie’s potential involvement with the project, so I wouldn’t count on it.
