David O. Russell will write and direct the Washington comedy, Sammy's Hill for Columbia Pictures and Red Wagon.

The project is based on Kristin Gore's inside-the-Beltway novel; The Hollywood Reporter says it centers on a young woman who tries to balance a job as a congressional aide on Capitol Hill while searching for the right guy. Gore is the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore. Russell is working closely with Kristin Gore, Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein on the screenplay.

No production schedule has been set for Sammy's Hill.
