Just yesterday director David O. Russell was forced to replace Christian Bale with Jeremy Renner in his upcoming drama, formerly known as American Bullshit. While Renner is certainly a fine actor, it was a blow to the project simply because we all still remember just how powerful Bale was in Russell's The Fighter. But for those of you afraid that there won't be any flavor from the 2011 Oscar-winning film in the new project, I have some good news.
According to Variety, Amy Adams has taken a part in the upcoming drama. The script was written by Eric Warren Singer and is based on a true story. The story is about a FBI sting operation called "Abscam" that was carried out in the 1970s. The mission ended up being a complete success and actually resulted in a senator and five house members being convicted for crimes that they had committed. In addition to Renner, Bradley Cooper is also still in talks to join the movie. Adams, who played Charlene Fleming, Micky Ward's girlfriend, in The Fighter, will play Cooper's "partner and mistress." Production on the movie is scheduled to start in February.
We'll be seeing tons of Amy Adams over the next few months. Later this year she has both Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and Clint Eastwood's Trouble With The Curve, while next year she'll be playing Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel (and that's not even including her turn in Walter Salles' On The Road, which still doesn't have a US release date).
