Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in a new film for director Steven Spielberg. “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, ” will be about a war photographer’s experiences.

What happens when a two time Oscar winning director teams with the hottest young Oscar winning actress in Hollywood? Well we’ll soon find out. Let’s hope that this does not turn out like so many disappointments from major stars that have come out over the years.

Warner Bros. Studios won the rights to turn the memoir from real life war photographer Lynsey Addario into a movie. It beat out many other suitors including the Weinstein Co. and a group which had pegged Natalie Portman to star. It will be produced by “American Sniper’s” Andrew Lazar.

The following is the official description on the book:

“Lynsey Addario was just finding her way as a photographer when September 11th changed the world. One of the few photojournalists with experience in Afghanistan, she gets the call to return and cover the American invasion. She makes a decision she would often find herself making—not to stay home, not to lead a quiet or predictable life, but to risk her life, to set out across the world, and to make a name for herself. It’s What I Do follows a course unavoidable for Addario—from her first camera and the pictures it inspired, to early years as a street photographer and the inspiration she found in the work of Sebastião Salgado. Photography becomes a way for her to travel with a purpose—a singular ambition that shapes and drives her.

“As a woman photojournalist determined to be taken as seriously as her male peers, Addario fights her way into a boy’s club of a profession, eventually earning widespread recognition, a MacArthur Genius Grant, and a Pulitzer Prize. Refusing to turn down career-defining assignments, she puts romance and family on hold. Yet the sadness and injustice she encounters as as a conflict reporter give her a new vision for her own life, and the more she sees of the world, the greater her desires for love and family grow. It’s What I Do is also the story of how Addario met her husband and father to their child, and how as a war correspondent and a mother, she learned to live her life in two different—though hardly separate—worlds.”
