The first trailer has surfaced online from director David O. Russell’s upcoming period drama American Hustle. The film is based on a true story and centers around a 70’s Abscam FBI operation that features brilliant con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with an unorthodox federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters and politicians.
There is an indulgent amount of A-list talent here and everyone doing the best work of their career over the last few years. Something in the material brought this much caliber talent together and I don’t think it was the hair cuts. Russell could do any project he wanted after Silver Linings Playbook and everyone in the cast is in high demand. This ranks pretty high on the 2013 must-see list.
The cast includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Louis CK, Michael Pena, Jack Huston, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro.
