Christian Bale joins the likes of Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams on the set of the untitled criminal drama formerly known as American Bullshit.
Director David O. Russell has worked with Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper in his movies The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. Russell's new film, based on a true story, is produced by Atlas Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures.
Set in the late 70s in Atlantic City, it will revolve around a notorious con artist (Bale) and his mistress (Adams). Both are forced by the FBI to work on a massive anticorruption sting in the casino city. Bradley Cooper will portray the FBI agent who heads the operation, while Jeremy Renner will play the corrupt mayor of Camden.
David O. Russell will start shooting the movie mid-February 2013, and its release is scheduled for late 2013.
