After spending months flitting from project to project, director David O’Russell finally went into production on a new project recently, The Silver Linings Playbook, with a great cast including Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jackie Weaver Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Stiles and Chris Tucker.
Now the first images have popped up online, via Collider, who got hold of them at the AFM, along with a synopsis. Take a look at the pics above and below. Here’s the synopsis:
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Matthew Quick, THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is a touching, one-of-a-kind comedy about love and second chances.
Pat Peoples (Bradley Cooper) is a man always trying to look on the bright side of life – the title of the story takes it’s name from the expression that “every cloud has a silver lining.” Released from the hospital after losing his wife to another man, Pat believes this age-old adage is just the ticket to trying to win her back and get his life on track. Trying to remain resolutely undiscouraged, Pat moves back in with his parents and devotes himself entirely to becoming the man his wife always wanted him to be. But it’s an uphill battle. Until Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a beautiful young woman whose life also has not turned out the way she wanted. Together, the couple will try and navigate through their lives and stay true to who they are, always just one adventure away from a unique friendship, and possibly even love.
