After the success of Silver Lining Playbook, director David O. Russell is planning to get back behind the camera as quickly as possible for his next movie. The film is currently untitled, but was previously known as American Bulls**t.
Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Louis C.K. and Jennifer Lawrence are already confirmed to star, and now Deadline reports they’ll be joined by Alessandro Nivola (Jurassic Park III).
The movie is based on the true story of a con man (Bale) who unwillingly helped an FBI agent (Cooper) uncover a massive abscam conspiracy that spanned all across the Eastern Seaboard, and resulted in several corrupt politicians being brought down. Nivola will play Federal Prosecutor Reggio, who tried the final case in court.
It’s also been revealed that the movie will have a tight production schedule, as it’s yet to shoot but a December 13th, 2013 US release is already set, in the hope it will be in contention for Oscars.
