Actress Jennifer Lawrence will play war photographer Lynsey Addario in a film directed by Steven Spielberg.

The Prize-winning journalist has photographed victims of conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

She was also kidnapped in Libya.

Her book, It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life Of Love And War was the subject of a film studio bidding war when it was published last month.
