Destin Cretton is in talks to direct THE GLASS CASTLE which has Jennifer Lawrence set to star. Based on the memoir by Jeanette Walls, the story follows a woman (Lawrence) who deals with her homeless upbringing as the child of an alcoholic father and mentally unbalanced mother.
Cretton will also rewrite the Marti Noxon’s original draft alongside Andrew Lanham. Producing will be Gil Netter.
Cretton wrote and directed “Short Term 12”, which is based on his own Sundance short of the same name. Both are excellent.
He is repped by WME.
