Jennifer Lawrence to Play a Young Kathleen Turner in DUMB AND DUMBER TO
Jennifer Lawrence will soon be teaming up with the Farrelly brothers - and Harry and Lloyd.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winning HUNGER GAMES star has signed on for a small cameo in the upcoming sequel. Lawrence will play the younger version of Kathleen Turner.
THE WALKING DEAD's Laurie Holden, Turner, and Rob Riggle are also featured in the film.
Peter and Bobby Farrelly will return to helm the sequel as well as rewrite the original script written by Sean Anders and John Morris. Warner Bros was originally behind the project, but dropped the film earlier this summer.
The original buddy comedy was a box office hit, grossing $127,175,374 in the United States, and $247,275,374 worldwide, and topping the holiday season film gross. While initial reception towards the film was mixed, Dumb and Dumber has since obtained a cult following and has spawned a TV animated series, and a 2003 prequel.
Lawrence won an Academy Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and is well known for The Hunger Games series. She will next be seen in Catching Fire and the upcoming American Hustle and X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as Serena and The Devil You Know.
Other film credits include House at the End of the Street, X-Men: First Class, The Beaver, Like Crazy, Winter's Bone, The Burning Plain, The Poker House and TV appearances on The Bill Engvall Show and Medium.
