The last time David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper teamed up, their film Silver Linings Playbook earned a ton of Oscar nominations, including one for Cooper! Their next film, American Hustle, has released its first stills and you have never seen Cooper like this… and for that matter Christian Bale and Amy Adams.
Russell, Cooper, Bale and Adams go back to the 1970s for their tale, and those three big stars are merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to A-list talent in American Hustle. Jeremy Renner, Robert De Niro, Louis C.K. and Michael Pena are just a few of the other superstars filling out the cast.
The film is a fictionalized version of the late 1970s, early 1980s sting operation that became known as Abscam. Bale is a New Yorker who makes his living as an art thief (Adams is his love interest). Cooper is the FBI agent investigating him. Renner is a New Jersey city mayor and apparently the Mob doesn’t like the FBI working on their turf so much. We’re guessing De Niro has something to do with that!
No release date for American Hustle has arrived yet, but as soon as it does -- and we’re predicting a trailer around that time -- we’ll bring it to you.
Until then, enjoy the look of Cooper with some serious spray tan action.
