Everyone's new best friend, Jennifer Lawrence, is set to reunite with Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell and co-star Bradley Cooper, Deadline is reporting. The actress has just signed on to Russell's next project, the Abscam pic formerly titled American Bullshit, which is already set to star Cooper, along with Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and possibly Louis C.K.
As she'll be portraying the wife of Bale's character, it doesn't look like the role will be all that big for Lawrence - he is already said to have an affair with Adams' character, and relationship tension doesn't seem like it would have much of a place for prevalence in a film that's supposed to surround a FBI sting operation that took down U.S. congressmen in the late 70s and early 80s. But hey, maybe we can hope for some badass bitch monologues! Plus, the idea of Lawrence and Cooper on screen again - it will be their third film together, counting the upcoming Serena - is definitely a good one.
