J. Lawrence to re-team with Cooper and David O. Russell for Abscam dramedy

Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale are also on board David O. Russell’s followup to “Silver Linings Playbook.”

Jennifer Lawrence is the betting man’s favorite for the Best actress Oscar for that film, so why not re-team with Cooper and Russell for a movie about the FBI sting that faked out American members of Congress in the late 1970s/early ’80s, who thought they were dealing with rich Arabs wanting to buy influence on Capital Hill? Abscam, it was called, and it was a shameful episode that caught members of Congress stuffing cash down their pants.

It was also comical, because it caught members of Congress stuffing cash down their pants.
