Toby Jones has confirmed he'll be working alongside his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence in a new movie, tentatively titled Serena.

Capote star Toby will feature alongside Jennifer and Bradley Cooper in an adaptation of Ron Rash's novel of the same name.

Speaking at the Hunger Games premiere, the British actor, who doesn't share any scenes with the Oscar nominated starlet in the blockbuster, said: "I'm about to do a movie where I work directly with her all the time."

He continued: "It's a film called The Calling, at the moment, or Serena, one of those two titles.

"It's about the lumber industry in North Carolina in the 1920s and it's a love story between her and Bradley Cooper that goes terribly wrong, and I hunt them down."

Toby plays heartless announcer Claudius Templesmith in The Hunger Games, in which Jennifer stars as feisty heroine Katniss Everdeen.
