Jennifer Lawrence is putting down Katniss  Everdeen's famous bow and picking up - a mop?

The Oscar winner will reportedly play Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano in her third collaboration with Silver Linings Playbook director, David O Russell.

Fox has set Christmas Day, 2015, as the release date for the film.

The rags-to-riches tale will follow the Long Island single mother as she becomes one of America's most successful entrepreneurs.

Bridesmaids screenwriter Annie Mumolo will write the script.

Earlier this year, Lawrence hinted on a TV talk show that O Russell had approached her about the part.

''He recently texted me at, I think, four in the morning,'' she  recounted.

''And it was like, 'I think I want to make a movie about the  woman who made the Joy Mop. You wanna do it?"

"I can just imagine David looking at someone mopping and being like, 'Yeah, that's my next screenplay.'''
