Jennifer Lawrence Wants To Work With O.Russell Forever

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she wants to work with David O. Russell forever.

The duo are set to reunite in the New Year with their latest film project Joy, which is inspired by the life of Joy Mangano.

Joy will be the third feature film for Lawrence and Russell and comes after huge critical and commercial success with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

Speaking at a Q&A session after a screening of Joy in New York, Lawrence made her feelings about working with Russell very clear.

She said: “I’ll do anything with you until you die. It’s sweet and f***ed up.”

It was back in 2012 when the pair first worked together on an adaptation of the Matthew Quick novel Silver Linings Playbook. At the time, Lawrence was already a star but this movie really did send her star rocketing even further.

The movie saw her nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for the second time in her career – the first was for Winter’s Bone – and she went on to win.

The pair would reunite in 2014 when Lawrence would take on a supporting role in American Hustle alongside Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner.

Lawrence was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress this time around, but lost out to Lupita Nyong’o for her performance in 12 Years A Slave.

Joy is already being tipped as a potential Oscar contender and we just might see Lawrence in the Best Actress Oscar race once again.

However, Joy is not all about Lawrence as the actress is joined on the cast list by Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Elisabeth Röhm, and Édgar Ramírez.

Joy is released 1st January 2016.
