Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper will reunite in new David O. Russell movie. Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly set to reunite with Bradley Cooper and David O. Russell, her Silver Linings Playbook co-star and director. The new project, previously titled American Bullsh*t, revolves around the famous 1970s FBI sting operation called Abscam, which uncovered corruption in the U.S. Congress.
Lawrence, Cooper and Russell — all of whom have been nominated for Oscars for Silver Linings Playbook — will get back together for the drama, according to Deadline. She will play the wife of Christian Bale’s character, a former con man turned organizer of the FBI operation in the ’70s-set drama which also stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner.
Lawrence’s role is likely to be a supporting one this time around. The story focuses on the intersecting interests of a notorious financial con artist (Bale), his mistress and partner in crime (Adams), an out of control federal agent (Cooper) and a volatile New Jersey state assembly leader (Renner).
Russell clearly enjoys working with the same actors multiple times: Bale won an Oscar and Adams earned a nomination for Russell’s The Fighter.
The in-demand Lawrence has already won a Golden Globe and SAG award for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. She’s set to reprise her role as Mystique in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and also has the two-part finale of The Hunger Games yet to film.
She and Cooper have another film, Depression-era drama Serena, due for release this year.
