Development on the planned East of Eden re-adaptation is moving ahead. THR reports that Gary Ross (The Hunger Games), who is directing the film, will also write the script. Jennifer Lawrence is re-teaming with Ross to star.
The 1952 John Steinbeck novel is a retelling of the Cain and Abel story that is set in California's Salinas Valley. Lawrence will play Cathy Ames, the primary antagonist who is the mother of brothers Caleb and Aron Trask.
