Clearly this new role is a bit of a departure from the one Lawrence won her Oscar for in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Fortunately she’ll have a familiar costar in the movie, as it reteams her with her “Silver Linings Playbook” leading man Bradley Cooper.
Though the film does not yet have a name, plenty of plot details are known about it. Lawrence plays the wife of Christian Bale‘s con artist character, while Amy Adams plays his mistress who he works with to scam people. Cooper portrays the FBI agent who catches the duo in the act and gets them involved with the sting operation Abscam that exposed corrupt politicians in the 1970s. Jack Huston, Jeremy Renner and Louis CK also star in the movie.
