In the past few people worked with David O. Russell more than once, partly due to the fact he was renowned for having a fiery temper. However it appears he’s become easier to deal with as American Hustle was filled with actors on their second go round with the director.
That included Jennifer Lawrence, who had a particularly good reason to return, having just won an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, and some now suggesting she could get another for Hustle. It seems Russell isn’t done with her, as Deadline reports the director is eyeing a biopic of Joy Mangano and he wants Lawrence to star.
Mangano was ‘a struggling Long Island single mom of three who became one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs with her self-wringing Miracle Mop invention.’ Annie Mumolo wrote the script about a woman who was working three jobs to try and support her family, and had to fight to get her invention recognised, but it eventually became a home shopping sensation, including becoming one of the Home Shopping Network’s most successful presenters.
There’s no news on when it might shoot, or indeed whether Lawrence will be able to fit the movie around her Hunger Games commitments.
