Closer to Screen: SERENA

Given the star power of the Jennifer Lawrence/Bradley Cooper combo, as evidenced in Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, it’s been surprising that a third film starring the duo, Serena, adapted from Ron Rash’s 2008 novel, has not yet seen the light of day.

Above the WaterfallIt seems Danish director Susanne Bier, whose movie, In A Better World, won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, wanted to take her time in the editing room. New images from the film have just been released and are being featured on various web sites (The Playlist offers the largest selection; MTV praises Lawrence’s “retro glam”), indicate that it may soon have a release date.

Rash’s next novel, Above the Waterfall, (HarperCollins/Ecco) is scheduled for publication in 2015.
