After the success of the cute romantic comedy THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK earlier this year, it seems Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are attached at the hip when it comes to landing roles in upcoming Hollywood features.
The pair started their working relationship on THE SILVER LINIGS PLAYBOOK which saw them land lead roles as husband and wife in SERENA (to be released later this year). The pair have now been cast in new film scheduled to be released in December in the US this year. Although they may not be in a relationship in this film, there’s got to be some kind of tension between the two. The film is called AMERICAN HUSTLE, not to be confused with the 2007 comedy with the same title. Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:
The 1970s-set true story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters and politicians – namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished camden, New Jersey.
AMERICAN HUSTLE is currently in production as filming has commenced in Massachusetts. Directed by David O. Russel (who, ironically, directed THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK), the film was originally titled AMERICAN BULLSH*T. AMERICAN HUSTLE stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Amy Adams and Christian Bale.
