Jennifer Lawrence has a solid shot at winning the Best Actress Oscar later this month for her work in Silver Linings Playbook, and it looks like she’ll be reteaming with a couple of SLP vets sooner rather than later.  Deadline reports that Lawrence is set to join the already impressive cast for director David O. Russell’s next film, formerly titled American Bullshit.  The pic is based on a real-life undercover sting operation called Abscam, which was set up in the 1980s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress.  Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale are set in the lead roles, and now Lawrence is poised to star as Bale’s wife.

Lawrence and Cooper actually already have another film together in the can, as the period thriller Serena will be released later this year.  Production on Russell’s Abscam film is set to begin this month with Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Louis C.K. rounding out the cast.  Lawrence will then move on to filming the sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will open in 2014.
