Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence has been tapped to star opposite Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper in the David O Russell pic formerly known as American Bullshit, the drama written by Eric Singer and Russell about the ’70s FBI sting operation Abscam that took down a bunch of U.S. congressmen. That puts Lawrence back in business with Russell and Cooper, her cohorts on The Weinstein Company’s Silver Linings Playbook that landed them all Oscar nominations; she already has won the SAG Award and a Golden Globe for the role. She will play Bale’s wife in the Abscam movie, which is being produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle through Atlas Entertainment, which developed the film at Sony Pictures. Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner co-star in the ensemble, which is being fully financed by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures. Ellison also is producing and has been developing the script. »
