Lawrence wants to play Mystique in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

Jennifer Lawrence wants in on the "Guardians of the Galaxy" franchise, according to an interview with MTV she that did during a junket with her "Passengers" co-star Chris Pratt.

Pratt, 37 - one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men thanks to roles in "Jurassic World" and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" - joked that the pair had been "waiting for the ideal project" to finally combine their talents, but reaction to preview screenings suggests they should have waited longer. She continued that she is quite unsure, although she would definitely choose being in the next "Guardians of the Galaxy" instead of doing another X-Men movie. "I wonder if I can do that?"

Pratt smiled at the camera and joked, "It just happened".

Jennifer Lawrence to star in the movie Joy, opposite Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper. Guardians 2 is well into the post-production process, so to incorporate Lawrence would require reshoots.

Sounds like we won't be seeing Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in whatever kind of X-Men reboot Fox Studios is planning. Could there be more movies starring the two of them in the future?

The actress described "Passengers" as "the most original story I can remember even experiencing in a very long time", calling script a "total page turner". With that the future of the franchise is also in doubts.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, meanwhile, stars Pratt as Peter Quill and is set for a cinematic release on April 28, 2017.

In Passengers, Pratt and Lawrence play Jim and Aurora, two (guess what?) passengers sleeping in suspended animation en route to a new planet.
