Jennifer Lawrence has walked out from “The Rosie Project.” The reason behind the Oscar-winning actress' decision to quit the project has not been disclosed, but the film's production house is looking for her replacement.

Richard Linklater, however, is still linked to the project as a director. He is set to direct "The Rosie Project" from a script written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. 

“The Rosie Project” is a feature adaptation of an Australian novel of the same name by Graeme Simsion. It is a story about a socially incompetent genetics professor who comes up with a survey to find a perfect life partner. The professor’s theory is negated by Rosie Jarman, who is impulsive and has none of the qualities he is looking for.

“The Rosie Project” is not the only movie Lawrence has recently departed from. She also exited “A Glass Castle,” produced by Lionsgate, although she remains onboard as a co-producer.

Producing films is not the only thing which is keeping the “Hunger Game” actress busy lately. She is in early talks to star in Darren Aronofsky's untitled project. Though Aronofsky has not yet found a distributor for his mysterious film, he is positive and reaching out to actors, hoping to begin shooting this spring, Variety reported.

Lawrence will next be seen in David O. Russell’s “JOY," which opens on Dec. 25.
