Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has been roped in to portray the late Jazz icon Zelda Fitzgerald in her upcoming biopic to be directed by Ron Howard.

The drama, which is currently titled Zelda, is being developed by Howard, who is eyeing it as a potential directing vehicle, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

Lawrence will also serve as one of the producers for the upcoming film.

Zelda was married to author F Scott Fitzgerald, who saw her as his indispensable muse and fiercest competitor.

Lawrence was last seen in the superhero film X-Men: Apocalypse earlier this year. She will next share screen with Chris Pratt in the romantic sci-fi thriller Passengers and star in an untitled Darren Aronofsky project.
