Edgar Ramirez Joins Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell’s ‘Joy’

Edgar Ramirez is in final negotiations to join Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell’s biopic “Joy” for Fox 2000.

Robert De Niro is also on board to play Lawrence’s father in the film, based on the true story of Joy Mangano, a struggling Long Island single mom who became one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs after inventing the Miracle Mop.

Ramirez will play Mangano’s then husband, Tony.

John Davis, John Fox and Ken Mok are producing with Annie Mumolo penning the script.

The film is gearing up for a first quarter start and is already set to open next Christmas to make a late awards season push.

Ramirez, who is repped by CAA and Impression Entertainment, recently wrapped production on Alcon’s “Point Break” reboot and was last seen in Screen Gems’ “Deliver Us From Evil.”
