Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner (Marvel's The Avengers), and Amy Adams (upcoming Man of Steel) will be joined by Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises) in David O. Russell's upcoming untitled ensemble drama. Russell's penning the filmís screenplay with Eric Warren Singer, based on Singerís original script.

The film marks the directorís first time working with Renner (two-time Academy Award nominee), and his second collaborations with Bale (Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor for The Fighter), Adams (three-time Academy Award nominee including The Fighter) and Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook). David O. Russell's acclaimed Silver Linings Playbook garnered the Audience Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Atlas Entertainment's Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce alongside Annapurna Pictures' Megan Ellison and Ted Schipper. Jon Gordon, who most recently produced Silver Linings Playbook, will also serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Bradley Cooper and Eric Warren Singer. Annapurna Pictures is fully financing the film, tentatively set for release in late 2013. Columbia Pictures will handle US Distribution.

"David has put together an incredible ensemble of actors for what is going to be a powerful and emotional drama about one of the most memorable cast of characters in recent history," noted Charles Roven.

The Untitled David O. Russell Project is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.

Panorama Media has sold the film internationally, which includes a multi territorial deal with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions. Production will begin mid-February on the East Coast.
