Adapted and directed by DAVID O. RUSSELL, the cast features BRADLEY COOPER, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ROBERT De NIRO, JULIA STILES, CHRIS TUCKER and JACKI WEAVER.
Proving what a small world movie-making can be, this film is a reunion for COOPER and De NIRO (who worked together in the 2011 thriller LIMITLESS) and was the impetus for COOPER and LAWRENCE to re-team in the currently shooting SUSANNE BIER family drama SERENA.
