Christian Bale was originally set to star alongside Bradley Cooper in David O. Russell's AMERICAN BULLSHIT. Well, now it seems that Bale and the title are gone.

While they are still on the lookout for a new film title, someone has come in to replace Bale. Jeremy Renner is currently in negotiations for the role of, "Jimmy Boyle, the FBI agent who busts Weinberg and then partners with him in the sting." Cooper is in negotiations as well to play, "con artist, Mel Weinberg, who worked with the FBI as the star witness in its far-reaching Abscam corruption case that stretched from Atlantic City all the way to the steps of Congress."

The true story is based on, "a notorious financial con artist and his mistress who were forced to work with an intense and ambitious FBI agent to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters and politicians." Production on the film starts in February of 2013.

No reason was given as to why Bale dropped out. He is nearly wrapped on OUT OF THE FURNACE then will move on to work with Terrence Malick on two films for the remainder of the year.

I'm certain it was pretty inevitable that they would have to come up with a new title.

I wonder what this movie will be called overseas where censor laws are a bit harsher. Or maybe it'll be DTV or VOD or better yet limited theatrical run..?
