Serena is an upcoming American drama film based upon the novel of the same name by American author Ron Rash.[2] Directed by Susanne Bier, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as newlyweds Serena and George Pemberton.


The film is set in Depression-Era North Carolina, and follows their struggles, as the future of George's timber empire becomes complicated when it is learned that his wife cannot bear children.[3][4][5]



The film was originally to be directed by Darren Aronofsky, with Angelina Jolie as the title character. Bier replaced Aronofsky and cast Lawrence and Cooper. Filming took place in the Czech Republic at Barrandov Studios from March 26 to May 2012.[1] Bier took more than 18 months to complete the film, but there were no re-shoots or problems in post-production.[6] Bier also had to take time away to promote Love Is All You Need.[7] Serena is scheduled to be released in April 2014.[8]
