Press release from Atlas Entertainment:
The Untitled David O. Russell Project is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.
Russell has previously worked with Bale and Adams (in “The Fighter”) as well as Cooper (for “Silver Linings Playbook”). This marks the first time Renner is in a Russell feature.
“David has put together an incredible ensemble of actors for what is going to be a powerful and emotional drama about one of the most memorable cast of characters in recent history,” Chuck Roven, the film’s producer noted in the release.
