Anne Hathaway and Bradley Cooper may team for David O. Russell film
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Right on the heels of us announcing that Anne Hathaway was going to be hosting the Academy Awards with James Franco, we find out that she has signed on for THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, another film by David O. Russell. The film follows a former teacher who is admitted to the hospital for mental illness and upon release goes to live with his mother. His plan is to woo his ex-wife but he ends up falling for a neighbor who also has a history of mental illness. Bradley Cooper is currently “being wooed” for the lead but there is no confirmation that he will join (although he would be crazy not to). Hathaway will, of course, play the neighbor. No word on will filming will start.
David O. Russell is the hot director at the moment. His film THE FIGHTER comes out this weekend and he has recently said he will direct the UNCHARTED film with Mark Wahlberg and working on a drama with Ice Cube.
