Jennifer Lawrence - Jennifer Lawrence Signs On For Third David O. Russell Film

Jennifer Lawrence has signed on for her third project with director David O. Russell in a film titled Joy.

The 23-year-old actress previously collaborated with the filmmaker on American Hustle and her Oscar-winning role in Silver Linings Playbook, and now she is teaming up with O. Russell yet again for the rags-to-riches tale about Joy Mangano, the woman who invented the Miracle Mop.

Mangano, a single mother of three kids, became a millionaire after launching the cleaning product on American shopping network Qvc, and her company has since grown exponentially with her additional inventions.

Lawrence first mentioned the project during a recent appearance on U.S. chat show Live! With Kelly and Michael, revealing the director already had her in mind for the unique role.

She explained, "He recently texted me at, I think, 4 in the morning, and was like, 'I think I want to make a movie about the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. You want to do it?' And I was like, 'Yeah'."
