Filmmaker David O. Russell has quite a reputation for his fiery on set demeanour. His film ‘Three Kings’ with George Clooney was fractious and the blazing on set row whilst filming ‘I heart Huckabees’ with the director calling Lily Tomlin the c-word was notorious. But perhaps its a means to an end because between 2011 and 2014 he was Oscar nominated five times as Best Director and Best Screenplay categories. He seems to have calmed down considerably over the years and regularly attracts an A-list acting cast to work with him and news is now in of David O Russells ensemble film.
The film, his next feature at New Regency and 20th Century Studios, already had an impressive cast anyway that included Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, and most recently Rami Malek and Zoe Saldana. Well it has now been announced that but nine more top acting names have joined what looks like David O Russells ensemble film with one of the biggest star casts in many, many years.
