Speaking about casting the Oscar nominated actress in the upcoming flick, producers Todd Black and Steve Tisch said in a statement: "Jennifer was basically asked to play 4 personalities [in Silver Linings Playbook]... and did them all brilliantly. After seeing that performance we knew we had our anchor for Ends Of The Earth.

"Her dedication to the craft and all those who work with her is inspiring and if she is the future of our business we are certainly in good hands."

We love it when people call acting 'the craft'. Makes it sound likes there's a bunch of cackling witches involved or something.

According to Deadline, the screenplay for the film has been written by the same guy who penned Argo - which is also up for about a gazillion awards including a couple of Oscars - so basically, this is one to watch.

Are you excited at seeing Jen in another big screen role?
