Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to play a Russian trained agent in an adaptation of spy novel Red Sparrow according to Deadline. It centres on a state intelligence officer named Dominika Egorova, who is taught against her will to use sex as a weapon as a post-Soviet intelligence “sparrow”.
Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and, inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America’s most valuable mole in Moscow.
It was reported that Francis Lawrence, the director who has worked with Jennifer in ‘Catching Fire’, ‘Mockingjay Part One & Part 2’ is set to direct the film. It is good to see Francis and Jennifer working together, the movie is going to be fun!
