Deadline reports that Lawrence will play the wife of co-star Christian Bale's character.

The movie, written by Eric Warren Singer (The International) and O Russell, centres on 1970s FBI sting operation Abscam. The operation, set up by a con artist, ultimately led to the conviction of several elected officials including a US senator and five members of the House of Representatives.


Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams and Louis CK also have parts in the movie.

Lawrence, Cooper and O Russell have all received Oscar nominations for Silver Linings Playbook. The writer/director visibly expressed shock at Lawrence losing out in the 'Best Actress' category at the BAFTAs recently.

The new film also reunites O Russell and Bale, the pair having worked together previously for The Fighter.
