Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and David O. Russell are teaming up again. Apparently all three getting Oscar nominations for "Silver Linings Playbook", was validation enough. Go figure.
The film penned by Russell and Eric Singer, is the untitled Abscam drama, formerly called "American Bullsh*t". Christian Bale, who won an Oscar for Russell's "The Fighter", is already set to star.
The story focuses on the FBI's Abscam sting that occurred in the 1970's, in order to take down several United States congressmen. It lead to the eventual imprisonment of U.S. Senator Pete Williams.
Lawrence is set to play the wife of Melvin Weinberg (Bale), the ex-con who devised the Abscam operation for the FBI. Louis C.K. is also attached to co-star in the film.
We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
