Jennifer Lawrence's War Photog Movie Has A New 'Mockingjay' Connection

Just the writer for the job.

As if we needed another reason to get psyched about Jennifer Lawrence's team-up with director Steven Spielberg (oh, legendary director with one of our favorite humans in the lead? Sure, sure, sure), there's a new, explosively exiting element added to the mix.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" screenwriter Peter Craig has been announced as the writer for "It's What I Do," the in-development war photographer movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If he's the one who put those epic speeches, like "If we burn, you burn with us!" into JLaw's mouth in the epic series, well, we have faith that Craig will be able to bring very quotable gravitas to "It's What I Do," based on the memoir of the same title by Lynsey Addario.

In addition to Craig's writing credits on both installments of "Mockingjay," he also wrote Ben Affleck's "The Town."

The project is still in development, and shooting won't even begin until after Spielberg's next two projects, a film adaptation of Roald Dahl's "The BFG" and the newly announced "Ready Player One," also an adaptation of a novel.
