David O. Russell & Jennifer Lawrence

Earlier this year, we learned that director David O. Russell and his Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle star Jennifer Lawrence would reteam for a film about Joy Mangano, the single mother inventor of the Miracle Mop. Since Russell gets involved with many projects, but ends up following on very few of them, we weren't sure if the film would actually come together, but now ERC Box Office has word that the movie is simply called Joy, and it has been given a release on December 25th, 2015, right on Christmas Day. With this news, the project seems to have solidified at Fox, and it's mostly likely Russell's next project.

Lawrence will play the woman who became one of the country's most successful entrepreneurs with the self-wringing floor cleaner. The film would follow Mangano from her days struggling as a single mother working three jobs to support her kids and finally caught a break with the Home Shopping Network sensation known as the Miracle Mop. The original script comes from Oscar nominee Annie Mumolo, who co-wrote Bridesmaids, but Russell will likely rewrite some of the script to his own liking. We could have yet another Oscar contender on our hands, especially since Lawrence and Russell ended up with nominations for their work both times they collaborated. Could we be looking at a three-peat?

How can movie producers predict so far ahead? No one knows what might happen between now and then. Because anything can happen between now and 2015. Things can change. No one can predict the future.

LOL!...You posted the same comment over at /FILM...give it up/calm down, etc.,...look, Jennifer Lawrence has been critically acclaimed since her first film up to and including American Hustle. It's the majority opinion coming from those far more skilled than you in making that assessment. Oh, and the same goes for David O. Russell.
