Hmmm. I wonder why it’s so hard for Jennifer Lawrence to be cast opposite someone who is age appropriate for her? She’s only 22, yet she keeps bagging roles opposite guys who are pushing 40. What, does Robert Pattinson have a “Kristen Stewart-only” clause in his contract?
Regardless, Lawrence will be seen opposite Christian Bale in director David O. Russell’s untitled feature which is set to go into production this year. The movie is about the real life conman Mel Weinberg who helped the FBI bust a government corruption ring. Lawrence plays Bale’s wife in the film, which will also co-star her Silver Linings Playbook leading man Bradley Cooper, as well as Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner.
