Bale's back and he's playing the conman (best role in the script IMO). Can't wait to see Bruce Wayne and Lois Lane get it on.

Quote:
“David has put together an incredible ensemble of actors for what is going to be a powerful and emotional drama about one of the most memorable cast of characters in recent history,” said Roven.

“The Untitled David O. Russell Project” is based on the true story of a financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.

Bale isn't slowing down at all.

Neither is the sensational Amy Adams.

Interview with Russell about the project:

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplayli...drama-20121203

Quote:
"It's a crime drama that's really about some very high end financial con artists who are very colorful, strange characters,” he told The Playlist in an interview this week. “And it's about the FBI -- but Bradley [Cooper’s] like an ethnic FBI guy from the Bronx and it's about the [eventually indicted] mayor of Camden, New Jersey, Angelo Errichetti, who is Jeremy Renner. Camden was mostly a black and Puerto Rican community at that time. Very amazing, interesting world of New York at that time. It’s very exciting."

Russell's always had a canny eye for casting actors in unexpected parts -- see Amy Adams' tough girl in “The Fighter,” or the way Mark Wahlberg took to comedy in ‘Huckabees’ -- and he’s taking a similar path with this new film, placing his heavyweight cast in usual casting slots.

"They're all going to do things we haven't seen them do in this movie, it's going to be very exciting. Renner's going to be like you've never saw him. Bradley's going to be like you never saw him. Christian will be... I don't want to give too much of it away but they're all playing real life characters from the ‘70s and they're very intense in an insane drama."

As with "The Fighter" and "Silver Linings Playbook," the director says he’ll play with genre trappings and then use them as a springboard to dig deeper into the the characters involved. "This is life and death stakes for people," Russell told us. "The mafia was involved in this, it was very frightening. People's lives were on the line and it was unbelievably hairy what these characters were doing in this new movie. But I'm interested in their relationships, in their love lives, in their bedrooms, in their hearts, you know what's going on between them emotionally. There's a love triangle between Amy, Bradley and Christian. And Jeremy and Christian have kind of a very unexpected bromance because they're very similar New Jersey, New York type characters, so they really take to each other."

As ever with Russell, though, expect a vein of humor in the film too. "In real life, these things are stranger than fiction so there has to be a lot of comedy in them,” he said. “Some of my favorite films by the Coen Brothers or by Scorsese or Tarantino, those pictures are both really emotional, intense, and they're also funny and from a place of realness. It always has to be from a place of realness. Even Tarantino, even when he's killing Hitler [in ‘Inglorious Basterds’] which is unreal, it's real. It's like a gothic comic book that somehow is real. it's emotional because he puts emotions into it."

Mark was actually who I had in mind for the part that Cooper was playing when I was reading the script. But it seems he and Russell had a falling out over SLP?

That sucks. And it's true, Mark brought David O. Russell when his career was in danger and made him into a gem again with The Fighter. Without The Fighter, there would be no 'Silver Line', like what the article said.

Louis C.K. in Talks to Join David O. Russell's Next Film (Exclusive)

The Emmy winner joins a cast that already includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams.

After conquering TV, Louis C.K. is tackling the film world's A-list of directors.

The multihyphenate, who recently starred in Woody Allen's upcoming comedy Blue Jasmine, is in talks to take on a key role in David O. Russell's next project, an untitled film formerly dubbed American ********.

The period drama, which already stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams, begins production next month.

The Sony Pictures film is being financed by Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures.

Based on a true story, the film centers on con artist Mel Weinberg who worked with the FBI in a far-reaching corruption case that stretched from Atlantic City to Washington, D.C. Eric Singer (The International) wrote the screenplay.

Louis C.K. who took home multiple Emmys in September for his TV work, is up for best performance by an actor in a TV series musical or comedy for Louie at this weekend's Golden Globes.

He is managed by 3 Arts.

Louis C.K. is funny. Have u seen his stand up routine about his attraction (i'm putting it mildly) to Ewan McGregor?

Can a mod re-title the tread? I can never find it via. search. Something like "Bale, Cooper, Renner & Adams in David O. Russell's American Bull****" so we can at least search two-names and find the title.

Also, Louis CK and Christian Bale in a single frame may just prove too much. Two of the finest method actors alive

Jennifer Lawrence is joining. She's playing Bale's wife. They should've swapped her and Amy (mistress). Odd.
