Christian Bale is reuniting with the man who directed him to an Oscar, David O. Russell.
Their upcoming untitled ensemble drama also includes another Oscar nominated co-star of “The Fighter,” Amy Adams. Jeremy Renner and Bradley Cooper, who stars in Russell’s upcoming “The Silver Linings Playbook,” round out the key players.
The Camden, New Jersey-set film tells the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale), his mistress and partner in crime (Adams), an out of control federal agent (Cooper) and the volatile state assembly leader (Renner).
Filming commences in mid-February, with a tentative U.S. release date of late 2013 via Sony’s Columbia Pictures.
