Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams and Christian Bale will star in the next David O. Russell film
David O. Russell's next film, previously titled AMERICAN BULLSHIT, is now nameless but has added another star to the cast. Joining the previously cast Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams will be Christian Bale. Bale won the Oscar for THE FIGHTER, also directed by Russell.
The untitled film will follow the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.
Interestingly, Bale was previously attached and dropped out. He was replaced by Renner but now it seems that both actors will remain in the film.
Russell is a notoriously finicky director and there are multiple stories of issues with him on set. Bale has somewhat of a temperamental personality as well, so it is a little surprising to see the pair of them actually reuniting. Hopefully that bodes well for the film.
Russell's latest, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, has been receiving a lot of positive reviews. Hopefully he keeps this streak of great movies going with this next one.
|Extra Tidbit:||AMERICAN BULLSHIT is a great title.|
