Jennifer Lawrence added another project to a promising list of upcoming roles on Wednesday, boarding director Paolo Sorrentino’s true-crime adaptation “Mob Girl.”

Lawrence will play mob smuggler and informant Arlyne Brickman for the “Young Pope” director from a script based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Teresa Carpenter, Variety reports.

The true story behind “Mob Girl” is sure to be one familiar to Lawrence, who played a criminal’s wife in 2013’s “American Hustle.” Brickman, modeling herself of a Bugsy Seigel’s partner, Virginia Hill, had a taste for the lifestyle of New York mobsters and began dating around the scene. As she became more ingrained in the New York mob scene, she eventually became a drug runner.

Brickman would turn on the mob in later years, after being disregarded as a Jewish woman and after a loan shark threatened her daughter. She agreed to wear a wire for the police and became a key witness in the case against the Columbo crime family. She is now in her 80s and resides in Florida.

Lawrence makes her return to acting after a one-year hiatus following the productions of “mother!” and “Dark Phoenix.” She is also attached to an unnamed soldier drama for A24 Films alongside Brian Tyree Henry.

Sorrentino rose to fame directing celebrating arthouse films in his native Italy, including “The Great Beauty” and “Youth.” He produced and directed all 10 episodes of HBO’s “The Young Pope” with Jude Law, and is currently in production on its follow-up, “The New Pope.”
