Jennifer Lawrence just keeps booking movie after movie and we have another biopic to look forward to seeing her in!
The 25-year-old Oscar-winning actress will be playing the former lover of Cuban leader Fidel Castro in Dear Fidel, which has been written by Eric Warren Singer, the co-writer of her previous film American Hustle.
Dear Fidel follows Marita Lorenz and “how in 1959 she met and began an affair with Cuban leader Fidel Castro when she was 19 years old. After becoming pregnant and having an abortion, Lorenz left Cuba and joined anti-communists in the US, getting recruited by the CIA for an assassination mission. In 1960, she returned to Cuba to carry out the mission but, according to lore, yielded to love,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
