Jennifer Lawrence is out of Sony’s “The Rosie Project,” TheWrap has learned. The film, which has Richard Linklater attached to direct, is an adaptation of Graeme Simsion’s best-selling novel.

Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, the pair behind indie romance “(500) Days of Summer,” wrote the script.

Lawrence entered talks for the projects in July. The story follows a socially inept genetics professor who devises a very detailed survey in order to find the perfect wife.

However, his new system is thrown into chaos when he meets a beautiful woman named Rosie — whom he falls for despite the fact she meets exactly none of his carefully crafted criteria.

Sony Pictures did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.

It’s been a busy Tuesday for Lawrence. An essay the Oscar-winner penned for Lena Dunham‘s feminist newsletter Lenny complained of the disparity in salaries among men and women in Hollywood.

“I’m over trying to the find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable,” she wrote.”Fuck that. I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard.”
