Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams go retro in first images from American Hustle
The first images from David O. Russell’s highly anticipated follow-up to SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, AMERICAN HUSTLE, are now online and if nothing else, it looks like the costume and makeup departments have been working overtime on this film. We get our first looks at Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams in the film and you can’t help but smile at Bale’s sleazy look. I’m curious to see what Russell has in store for us and I’m hoping we’ll get a trailer in the very near future. In the meantime, check out the first pics below.
AMERICAN HUSTLE is set to star Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Louis C.K., Amy Adams, Robert De Niro, Jack Huston, Michael Pena, Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Rohm and Jeremy Renner. The film used to be called ‘American Bullsh**’, but that title was dropped for obvious reasons. The film is about a notorious con artist (Bale) who is forced to work for a high strung FBI agent (Cooper) to take down other con artists and bad guys. Jennifer Lawrence will be playing Bale’s wife in the film while Jeremy Renner will play a politician and Amy Adams will play Renner’s wife. AMERICAN HUSTLE is directed by David O. Russell and will have a limited release on December 13th and a wide release on December 25th. (USAToday)
