Jennifer Lawrence will star in Steven Spielberg's "It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love and War," US media said.
Warner Bros studio secured the rights to the memoir by Lynsey Addario, the award-winning American international photojournalist, after an auction, Variety said.
"American Sniper" producer Andrew Lazar will also be involved, it said, citing sources.
Addario has traveled to war-torn countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq and was part of a New York Times team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2009.
Lawrence, 24, who won an Oscar in 2013 for "Silver Linings Playbook" and starred in "The Hunger Games" movies, is currently shooting David O. Russell's "Joy," which is set for release at Christmas.
