Jennifer Lawrence is hoping to win another Oscar award with her latest film deal, "East of Eden." The film is to be produced by Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures which will be a two-part take on the 1952 novel written by John Steinbeck.
Lawrence is up for the part of Cathy Ames, the central character in the film who is a corrupting and malevolent influence on the Trask family. Jo Van Fleet originally played that part in the film directed by Elia Kazan where she won the Oscar Award for Best Supporting Actress.
