Since he was correct about the casting for David O. Russell’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, we assume Roger Friedman at Showbiz411 is correct in saying that Anne Hathaway has joined and Bradley Cooper is in talks for Russell’s The Silver Linings Playbook.
While “Uncharted” was expected to be his next project, the site says The Fighter helmer will take on Matthew Quick’s novel first. The book is described as follows:
Pat Peoples, the endearing narrator of this touching and funny debut, is down on his luck. The former high school history teacher has just been released from a mental institution and placed in the care of his mother. Not one to be discouraged, Pat believes he has only been on the inside for a few monthsrather than four yearsand plans on reconciling with his estranged wife. Refusing to accept that their apart time is actually a permanent separation, Pat spends his days and nights feverishly trying to become the man she had always desired.
The Weinstein Company is the distributor for the film.
