- AMERICAN BULLSHIT
Previously referred to as American Bullshit, the film is based on a real-life undercover sting operation set up in the 1980s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress.
|Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner|
There’s been a bit of confusion regarding who’s playing what role, with Jeremy Renner recently reported as replacing Christian Bale in the film, however the producers have announced that Renner, Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Adams will all be starring in the pic.
Bale is now back onboard the project as the con artist, while Adams will play his mistress/partner in crime. They’ll be teaming up with an out of control federal agent played by Cooper, with Renner set as the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.
Russell wrote the script with Eric Warren Singer, based on Singer’s original screenplay.
This certainly looks like it will be something worth waiting for, with such an amazing cast, you can bet this will be something quite epic!
Production is set to begin in mid-February.
