Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence & Jeremy Renner Highlighted In New ‘American Hustle’ Poster
Columbia Pictures has set loose this new poster for David O. Russell’s ‘American Hustle.’ The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th before going wide on December 18th in the US. Written by Eric Singer and O. Russell, and starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Alessandro Nivola, Louis CK, Michael Pena, Jack Huston, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro, the drama is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Christian Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Amy Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Bradley Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Jeremy Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden. ‘American Hustle’ is set for December 20th in the UK. UPDATE: another new poster added below.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.

Variety are reporting that the ’28 Weeks Later’ director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo looks ready to return to the horror genre as he’s in talks to helm Paramount’s remake/re-adaptation of ‘Pet Sematary.’ The original 1989 film was based on the Stephen King novel and followed a family that moves into a new home next to a cemetery with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing along with Steven Schneider. Matt Greenberg and David Kajganich wrote the script. Fresnadillo most recently directed ‘Intruders’ starring Clive Owen.
The ‘Pet Sematary’ novel is described as follows: When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son — and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat. But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth — more terrifying than death itself…and hideously more powerful.
