The Fighter director David O. Russell has been on and off projects a lot as of late. He was once set to direct the Uncharted movie, but things fell through. His next film to come out is called The Silver Linings Playbook and it stars Bradley Cooper. That film will be coming out later this fall.
The newest piece of info on the director comes from Deadline. It looks like Megan Ellison is in talks to completely fund American Bullshit, a film that would star Bale and Cooper and tell the story of political corruption in the late 70s and early 80s.
I sure hope the film comes together because I really enjoyed watching Bale work with O. Russell in The Fighter and I’ve been looking forward to seeing Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook ever since it was announced.
