A film project with a compelling subject matter – the life experiences of a war photographer – that boasts Jennifer Lawrence is something that in itself would provoke plenty of interest from studios. Add that Steven Spielberg wants to direct it, and you can picture executives falling over each other to throw money at the idea. Such is the case for the adaptation of **It’s What I Do.

Warner Bros. has won the package deal for the film, which will be adapted from Lynsey Addario’s tome, subtitled 'A Photographer’s Life Of Love And War'. It will feature Addario’s impressive blend of personal and professional lives as she visits some of the most dangerous places on the planet in search of truth through pictures.

After she did the rounds of various companies, the likes of Working Title, The Weinstein Company, Darren Aronofsky and actress Margot Robbie all tried to snag the rights to Addario’s book and life rights, with Warner Bros. emerging triumphant thanks to the presence of Lawrence and Spielberg. It’s not certain when this will be made – both Lawrence and the director have hectic schedules, but you know Warner Bros. will want to crack on with it as soon as possible.
