Los Angeles: Jennifer Lawrence is teaming up with filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino for the movie adaptation of true crime book “Mob Girl”.

Written by Teresa Carpenter, the story is based on the life of the mob wife-turned-police informant Arlyne Brickman.

The film follows Brickman who grows up among racketeers on the Lower East Side of New York City where she’s drawn to the glamorous and flashy lifestyle of New York mobsters

Soon after, she begins dating “wiseguys” and running errands for them, before getting in on the action herself eventually becoming a police informant and a major witness in the government’s case against the Colombo crime family.

Sorrentino, best known for helming Jude Law-starrer “The Young Pope” miniseries, will direct the film from a script by Angelina Burnett, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In addition to headlining the film, Lawrence will produce the project along with Justine Polsky through their joint banner, Excellent Cadaver. Sorrentino and Lorenzo Mieli will also produce.
