Edgar Ramirez is Jennifer Lawrence's Miracle Mop Husband in 'Joy'
Just last month we learned that Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper may reunite with David O. Russell and Jennifer Lawrence in Joy, the story of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano. Cooper isn't officially on board, but De Niro has indeed joined the project as Lawrence's father. And now THR reports Deliver Us from Evil star Edgar Ramirez, who will be seen next year in the remake of Point Break, has joined the film before production begins in February. Ramirez will play Mangano's husband, who is dapper, but has also taken to sleeping around behind her back. Who in their right mind would cheat on Jennifer Lawrence? Read on!
Joy follows Lawrence as the female entrepreneur who became a fixture on the Home Shopping Network with her many inventions, though it was the iconic mop that turned her into a business superstar. It's not clear just how much of Mangano's life will make it onto the big screen, but it sounds like there could be some compelling character drama here. Coincidentally enough, the film will also be a bit of a reunion for Ramirez since he previously worked on the boxing drama Hands of Stone with Robert De Niro. The film is already slated for release on Christmas Day 2015. Stay tuned for more.
