Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell has decided to make his next feature a bit of a reunion. Once titled American Bullsh**t, the film, based on true events, has been classed as a crime thriller starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper. Now Jennifer Lawrence has signed on to play Mrs Christian Bale.
If the age difference was a problem between Cooper and Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook, we cannot imagine what people are going to think when they see Miss Lawrence with Christian Bale! Will it work?… we will just have to wait and see.
The film focuses on Melvin Weinberg (Bale), a con man who works scams with his partner Maxine Gardner, played by Amy Adams. However, FBI agent Jimmy Boyle (Cooper) finds out what the two are up to and uses their abilities to infiltrate mob criminals and corrupt politicians.
David O Russell has also enlisted the talents of Jeremy Renner and Louis CK but is still in the middle of casting the roles whilst pre-production continues. There is no word on what the film is likely to be called as of yet but when we are aware we will let you all know!
Lawrence and Bale?… Hmmm…
