Things are looking pretty "Rosie" for Jennifer Lawrence.

The Academy Award winning actress has signed on to star in the film version of The Rosie Project, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The Graeme Simsion book tells the love story of a bumbling professor and a woman who is the complete opposite of his ideal mate. Sounds right up Lawrence's alley, right?

Though director is currently attached to the project, the film has a script from Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who wrote (500) Days of Summer. Talk about a match made in rom-com heaven.

Published in 2013, the Australian novel has been an international bestseller. A sequel, The Rosie Effect, was released last year. Might Lawrence be ready for a double-header?
