Jennifer Lawrence In 'Savages'? Star In Talks For Oliver Stone Film

An Academy Award nomination can do wonders for an actress' career.

Jennifer Lawrence, who earned an Oscar nod for her top-shelf work in indie film "Winter's Bone," is already starring in big-budget "X-Men: First Class," and now, she's in talks to play with the tops of Hollywood.

Deadline reports that Lawrence is in talks to play the role of O in Oliver Stone's upcoming film, "Savages," a story about a woman with two co-existing pot-dealing boyfriends named Ben and Chon. And who is being considered for the boyfriend roles? Among others, both Leonardo DiCaprio and James Franco have met with Stone to take on the co-lover roles.

According to Deadline, Benicio Del Toro is up for the role of the Mexican drug cartel leader that kidnaps O. The film is based on a book of the same name.
