After conquering TV, Louis C.K. is tackling the film world's A-list of directors.

The multihyphenate, who recently starred in Woody Allen's upcoming comedy Blue Jasmine, is in talks to take on a key role in David O. Russell's next project, an untitled film formerly dubbed American Bullshit.

The period drama, which already stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams, begins production next month.

The Sony Pictures film is being financed by Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures.

Based on a true story, the film centers on con artist Mel Weinberg who worked with the FBI in a far-reaching corruption case that stretched from Atlantic City to Washington, D.C. Eric Singer (The International) wrote the screenplay.

Louis C.K. who took home multiple Emmys in September for his TV work, is up for best performance by an actor in a TV series musical or comedy for Louie at this weekend's Golden Globes.

Soapy Drama From David O. Russell & Susannah Grant Gets ABC Series Order
BY NELLIE ANDREEVA | Deadline
   
EXCLUSIVE: David O. Russell is coming to television. ABC has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order to a drama project from the American Hustle writer/director and Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant. The series, developed by CBS TV Studios and studio-based Timberman/Beverly,  is an upstairs/downstairs soap set at a private country club. Russell and Grant co-wrote the story, with Grant writing the teleplay. The two are executive producing with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly; CBS Studios is co-producing with ABC Studios. This marks the first TV series for Russell, the hottest filmmaker at the moment with rare back-to-back Best Picture Oscar nominees — American Hustle this year and Silver Linings Playbook last year  accompanied by best writing and directing nominations both times. Russell is on a streak, with his previous film, The Fighter, also earning a Best Picture and Best Director nominations in 2011.

The ABC drama also marks the first series for an outside broadcast network for CBS Studios in its first season opening up its development to broadcast nets besides siblings CBS and the CW. Grant previously created and executive produced the CBS/CBS Studios supernatural medical drama A Gifted Man. This is Timberman/Beverly’s fifth on-air series, joining Justified, Elementary, Unforgettable and Masters Of Sex. Straight-to-series orders have been on the rise at ABC, including Mistresses, the upcoming Black Box as well as Secrets & Lies, which is now casting. Russell, Grant and Timberman/Beverly are with CAA.

David O. Russell's 'Joy', Likely Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Set for Christmas 2015
   

It was reported earlier this year that David O. Russell and his American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook golden girl, Jennifer Lawrence, were looking to reteam once again on a film titled Joy and now Fox has set the film for a Christmas Day 2015 release. Lawrence isn't confirmed for the role just yet, though she was Russell's first pick earlier this year.

The story follows the life story of Joy Mangano (Lawrence), a struggling Long Island single mom of three who became one of the country's most successful entrepreneurs with her self-wringing Miracle Mop invention. Russell rewrote the script, which was originally penned by Annie Mumolo, one-half of the Bridesmaids screenwriting duo.

No word on when filming will take place as Lawrence is currently working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and Part 2 and will once again play Mystique in X-Men: Apocalypse as well as her attachment to Gary Ross's new adaptation of East of Eden.

Curious if anyone saw Accidental Love aka Nailed?
I saw the bizarre artwork on Redbox, had no clue what it was and eventually used a free rental on it.
It has some interesting flourishes. The sex scene is unique. Maybe one has been filmed that way before, but I can't think of one.
Maybe because it was never fully completed, the editing makes it feel New Wave at times.

Looking a few pages back, I wonder what happened to The Grackle?
