Jennifer Lawrence will be reuniting with Bradley Cooper and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell for the film previously titled film American Bullshit. The movie will also star Christian Bale.
The story takes place in the '70s and follows a con artist working with the FBI on a sting operation called Abscam that took down some U.S. Congressmen. The corruption case that stretched from Atlantic City to Washington, DC. The operation initially targeted trafficking in stolen property but was converted to a public corruption investigation.
According to the report Lawrence will play Bale’s wife in the story. This sounds like an interesting story that will make for a great film. I love the films that Russell has made, and I'm sure this is going to be another good one. You can't go wrong with the cast!
