Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence will team up again with her Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell for his next film – a drama formerly titled American Bulls—. The film is about the 70s and 80s FBI sting operation Abscam, which exposed the corruption and misdoings of public officials, resulting in convictions for a number of members of Congress. Her Silver Linings Playbook co-star and fellow acting nominee Bradley Cooper is set to star the film as well, alongside Amy Adams and Christian Bale, both of whom worked with Russell on The Fighter. Best Director nominee Russell isn’t messing with the formula. He’s just combining a few of the elements. [Deadline]

Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino has reportedly promised to make a cameo in a true Spaghetti Western, directed by Enzo G. Castellari (The Inglorious Bastards). Though Tarantino might be most famous for making cameos in his own films, this isn’t the first time he’d be stepping in front of the camera for another director. The film will be called Badlanders. Franco Nero who appeared in the original Django, will also reportedly have a small role. [THR]
