David O. Russell really loves Jennifer Lawrence (don’t we all?), and Bradley Cooper, too (that one I can’t explain). Having directed the pair — who also star in the upcoming Serena — twice already, Russell has declared his intentions for round three.

Lawrence will take the lead as Miracle Mop inventor and rags to riches self-starter, Joy Mangano. What’s that you say, a movie about a mop inventor — yeah, wake me up after it airs on Lifetime! And you know, if it were anyone other than Russell and JLaw carrying the thing, I’d one-hundred percent agree, but I’m betting Jen can make a mop story damned entertaining.

Mangano, a single mother who raised three children, also invented “the all-time best-selling product in HSN history,” Huggable Hangars, and a bunch of other kitschy-sounding home/personal products that have made her an award-winning kazillionaire. Speaking with Go, Russell said Joy is a character study of a woman who goes from “…a young girl, broke, to when she becomes a bit of a mogul, a bit of a power broker. And the people she’s surrounded by are extremely … she has very complicated, deep, personal family relationships, which are the bane of her and the reason she is who she is. There are great roles for other actors as well, to create a world.”

Looks like Jennifer’s gonna need those yellow gloves again.

Those other actors are Cooper, for whom Russell is creating a role, and another familiar (American Hustle) star, Robert De Niro (in talks).

See you at the 2015 Oscars!
