Director extraordinaire David O. Russell is interested in doing a biopic of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano. Variety reports that if he does take this project on, he would like his good luck charm, Jennifer Lawrence, to take on the main role.
For those of you who don’t know, Joy Mangano is the inventor of such gadgets as the Miracle Mop and Huggable Hangers. I have looked up what she is all about, and she has had a pretty busy life. She sold her first invention as a teenager and hasn’t stopped since. Even though she was a single mother of three, she kept at the inventing gig, and it has paid off. She now has a net worth of about $50 million.
Is this movie worthy? Maybe not, but with the one two punch of Russell and Lawrence, it might have a shot. I am definitely going to hold my opinion until I see the final product.
Until Next Time…
