U.S. Distributor: Columbia Pictures
Cast: Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper
Eric Singer’s screenplay ranked #8 on 2010’s Blacklist between Margin Call and Argo, the formerly titled American Bullshit is now highly touted the moment David O. Russell joined the project – as you can’t get more of a confidence booster than the rollout and critical reception for The Silver Linings Playbook (pic above). On board: Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and just added, Louis C.K. This should be an awards mentioned title at the end of the 2013 campaign.
Gist: An FBI sting operation in the 1970s called Abscam leads to the conviction of United States Congressmen.
Release Date: Still in pre-production, this will receive a huge festival platform in the fall, Columbia Pictures will then select a logical theatrical, awards-season friendly release date.
