David O. Russell's next film starring Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper sets a release date

Mar. 13, 2013by: Paul Shirey

The formerly titled AMERICAN BULLSHIT (now currently untitled) from director David O. Russell and starring Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., and Amy Adams is on the fast track with a release date now set for the feature film.  The Untitled Film will debut on December 13, 2013 in limited release, going wide on Christmas Day. 

Russell has been on a hot streak of late, with his last two films, THE FIGHTER and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, both garnering Oscar wins and box office clout.  The filmmaker seemed to be on a downward spiral with his infamous blowouts on set, most notably with Lili Tomlin on I HEART HUCKABEES and with George Clooney on THREE KINGS.  However, it seems Russell has calmed down and gotten down to business as a filmmaker and started to become an actor's director, as he'll be reteaming with two of his prior Oscar winners from THE FIGHTER and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence, not to mention the Oscar-nominated Bradley Cooper.  Additional castmembers include Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., and Amy Adams, which makes for a hell of a great cast.

Here's the synopsis:

The film tells the story of an FBI operation called Abscam that investigated Capitol Hill lawmakers and their possible role in illegal money exchanges in the late ’70s and early ’80s

This has now shot onto my must-see list for 2013, regardless of what it's eventually called.  With a cast like this and Russell in top form, this will likely be another knock out of the park.

The UNTITLED FILM will hit theaters on December 25, 2013 (with limited engagements starting December 13, 2013).

Extra Tidbit: Does this change your must-see list for 2013 at all?

The guy (deservedly) won a lot of awards for his tv show, but how awesome would it be to see Louis CK as an Oscar nominee next year. Wonder how big his role will be.

If O. Russel and Bale start a fight on the set of that movie I think it might be the end the world as we know it.

I've loved everything David O Russell since Three Kings and this no doubt looks promising, but I don't like it when a film maker has a new movie just a year after the last. Just a peeve of mine.

I'm very excited to see this. Everyone involved in this film is at the top of their game right now and with all this talent together the only way is up.

Will definitely be checking this out Christmas Day.

Amy Adams

You forgot to mention that Russell also directed Amy Adams to an Oscar-nominated performance. That is four actors that David O. Russell directed in his last two movies that were either nominated or who won an Oscar. That makes for both a great cast, and a track record that has helped overcome his earlier indiscretions.

Wait, he also directed Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver to Oscar nominated performances and Melissa Leo to an Oscar win, so that adds up to seven. However, those three

Helluva cast, great story to tell. But why, WHY do all the good movies get released in the last two weeks of the year when all I want to watch is football and cheesy Christmas specials?
