David O. Russell is attached to direct “American Bullshit” for Sony Pictures and Atlas Entertainment.

Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce the Eric Singer-scripted drama, which follows a con artist who works with the FBI in a far-reaching corruption case that stretches from Atlantic City to Washington, DC.

Russell recently directed “The Fighter” and is in post-production on “The Silver Linings Playbook,” a Weinstein Company pic that stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Chris Tucker.

Russell is repped by CAA and Gang, Tyre, Ramer & Brown.
