New images have been released for the drama Serena. The pic is an adaptation of the New York Times best-selling Ron Rash novel about George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence), a 1930s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry. Infidelity and infertility leads Serena to plot the murder of George’s illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government. I’m very excited to see what Lawrence does with the role, since it sounds like a juicy part and unlike anything she’s done before.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film, directed by Susanne Bier (In a Better World) also stars Toby Jones and Rhys Ifans. There’s currently no release date, but hopefully we’ll see it sometime this year.
