Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in romantic drama Ends Of The Earth.

The Oscar-nominated actress will take on the female lead in the movie, about a controversial love affair between an oil baron and his adopted daughter, Variety reported.

Based on a true story, the film will see the Hunger Games actress play Lydie, who was adopted as a girl by her aunt and uncle, and eventually becomes her uncle's wife.

Lydie apparently earns the nickname "princess of the prairies" after urging her husband to raise workers' wages and give them healthcare access.

Production is set to begin next summer.

Meanwhile, Jennifer will next star in the thriller House At The End Of The Street with Elisabeth Shue. She is also preparing to shoot The Hunger Games follow-up Catching Fire and X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
