It’s still pretty murky territory trying to figure out when we may finally see Susanne Bier’s “Serena,” which paired Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper immediately after the duo did David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” together. “American Hustle” has already come and gone, but still, no “Serena.” What’s the hold up? Who knows, but at least today we’ve got some new stills from the film, which production designer Richard Bridgland uploaded to his website.
Lawrence and Cooper play Serena and George Pemberton, respectively, a newlywed couple whose marriage is quickly tested when she finds out he fathered a child right before they got married. Coupled with ruthless ambition to be the reigning lumber tycoons, it’s a recipe for dark, dark things to go down in the rugged mountains of 1920s North Carolina. The Ron Rash novel was incredible, Lawrence and Cooper have demonstrated great chemistry in their other projects together, so what exactly is the hold up here??
We’re hoping “Serena” will be released in 2014 but it’s really looking like that may not even happen at this point. For now, new stills to hold us over, below.
