Amy Adams buying Russell’s ‘Bullshit’

Thesp to play female lead in con artist drama

With Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner closing in on the male lead roles in Sony’s untitled pic formerly known as “American Bullshit,” David O. Russell has now found his female lead in Amy Adams.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures is set to fully finance the Eric Warren Singer-scripted film, which Charles Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment are producing along with Ellison and Annapurna’s Ted Schipper.

Pic is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist and his mistress who were forced to work with an intense and ambitious FBI agent to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters and politicians. Adams will play Cooper’s partner and mistress.

Production will start in February, and Panorama has already sold the movie internationally. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired distribution rights in certain international territories, though Columbia Pictures will handle U.S. distribution.

Adams has a bunch of pics set to bow this year, including Warner Bros.’ “Trouble With The Curve” and TWC’s “The Master,” and is currently on the Central Park stage for “Shakespeare in Park: Into the Woods.”

The WME and Brillstein Entertainment-repped Adams also recently wrapped production on WB’s “Man of Steel” and Spike Jonze’s untitled next pic.
