Eric Singer (The International) wrote the screenplay, based on the true story of a con artist and his mistress, who were forced to work with the FBI to take down other grifters, mobsters, and politicians involved in a vast conspiracy. Jeremy Renner is in talks to replace Christian Bale as Jimmy Boyle, the FBI agent who busts the con artist, Mel Weinberg (Bradley Cooper), and forces him to help solve the Abscam corruption case, which spans from Philadelphia to Washington D.C.

Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is financing the drama. She will also produce alongside Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, and Ted Schipper. Production is scheduled to begin in February. Bradley Cooper also stars in David O. Russell's latest, The Silver Linings Playbook, arriving in theaters November 21.

American Hustle was released December 20th, 2013.
