Jennifer Lawrence joins Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale in David O. Russell’s next movie
Remember when David O. Russell had the reputation of being hard to work with? I guess sometime after George Clooney punched him on the set of THREE KINGS and Lily Tomlin went off on him during the filming of I HEART HUCKABEES, Russell chilled out and now he has no problem getting actors to sign up for a second round. After already enlisting the help of his SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK lead Bradley Cooper, he’s now added Jennifer Lawrence to star in his next, untitled movie.
But Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are just the tip of the iceberg, the film is also set to star Christian Bale, Louis C.K., Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. The film used to be called ‘American Bullshit’, 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. It’s quite an interesting lineup and it will be interesting to see how this all comes together. Filming starts in March and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this get released before awards season.
