Michael B. Jordan is set to star in David O. Russell's new movie which "revolves around a doctor and lawyer who form an unlikely partnership." He will star alongside Margot Robbie and Christian Bale.
It was originally rumoured that David wanted Jennifer Lawrence for the role, but production 'pivoted towards' Margot instead. As a matter of fact, David publicly revealed last April that he was writing a project specifically with JLaw in mind. It's unclear if this is the same project.
The movie is scheduled to start shooting in April
Not margot robbie starring in a film about me too and sexual harassment in the workplace only to later sign on a project directed by someone who has a long history of groping and on-set abuse— 3d printed loser (@boredmonet) February 12, 2020
And why is christian bale still working with him when he had to step in to defend amy adams from his abuse during american hustle to the point where he got in his face and told him to stop being an asshole— 3d printed loser (@boredmonet) February 12, 2020
even though i’m excited to see christian bale and margot robbie in the same movie, david o. russell has had a history of being verbally and even physically aggressive/abusive to those on cast/crew, and his niece has accused him of groping her, which he later confirmed— tiffany 🍀 (@amydunnesdiary) February 12, 2020
