The two have been in "The Silver Linings Playbook" and Jennifer Lawrence had won an Oscar for it. She was casted as Katniss Everdeen, another movie-adaptation of the best-selling book "The Hunger Games".

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper make it to the big screen once again with Oscar winner Christian Bale and Amy Adams in "American Hustle" and now the dynamic duo will once again play a couple in the movie adaptation of Ron Rash's "Serena".

The book is about a married couple who intend to build a timber empire. George Pemberton, which is played by Bradley Cooper, move out with his wife Serena Pemberton to the North Carolina mountains to start their empire.

George had fathered an illegitimate son years back when living in the mountains and Serena being from the city proves to learn quickly at living in the wilderness. They both protect their land and kill anyone who goes against them. When Serena finds out that she cannot bear a child of her own, she sets out to kill George's illegitimate son but finds out that he and his mother may be protected by her husband.

The unraveling of the book makes it such a great book that it has been acclaimed a "great" read by critics and by readers.

The movie had begun filming in 2012 and playing the role of "Serena" was Angelina Jolie though she had to back out and it was Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper that were given the role.

Fans would be excited to see the two back together and would this mean an Oscar for Bradley Cooper? Probably yes and probably another one for Jennifer Lawrence as well. Do not forget to catch this movie on the big screen, directed by Danish director, Susanne Bier starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.
