The last two times that David O. Russell teamed up with Jennifer Lawrence, it went really well for both of them. They each got Oscar nominations for Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle (with Lawrence actually winning for the former), and both films fared well at the box office. So it shouldn’t come as much of a shock that he’s eager to team with her again.
Russell is reportedly in talks with Fox 2000 to rewrite and possibly direct an untitled biopic about Joy Mangano, the inventor of the Miracle Mop, and wants Lawrence to star as the lead. If she does sign on, let’s just hope she does better with Mangano’s Long Island accent than she did with Rosalyn Rosenfeld’s. Get plot details and more after the jump.
