Jennifer Lawrence may re-team with ‘American Hustle’ director David O. Russell for Joy Mangano film
So far, Jennifer Lawrence has had enormous luck working with director David O. Russell.
"Silver Linings Playbook," their first collaboration, earned the "Hunger Games" actress an Oscar, while she's currently nominated for last year's "American Hustle," also directed by Russell.
Can they mop up the competition yet again?
According to Deadline, Russell is in talks to direct an as-yet-untitled biopic about Joy Mangano for Fox 2000. And he wants Lawrence to play the lead role.
Although Mangano may not be a household name, she went from being an overworked single mother to millionaire business mogul after inventing the Miracle Mop, the gigantically successful staple of the Home Shopping Network.
The film is being written by "Bridesmaids" co-writer Annie Mumolo. John Davis and John Fox are producing.
Lawrence will next be seen in "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
