It looks like Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar reign won't be slowing down anytime soon.

Having nabbed her first Best Actress statue last year and earning a Best Supporting Actress nod this year, she's teamed up with award-winning director David O. Russell once again.

Jennifer is said to be in 'early talks' to work with the director again for a biopic focusing on Joy Mangano, a single mother from New York who turned her 'Miracle Mop' into a multi-million Home Shopping empire.

If the movie magic combination of O. Russell and lawrence wasn't enough, Bridesmaids writer Annie Mumulo has also expressed an interest in working on the film, according to Deadline.

Jennifer won her first Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook and had her third nomination for American Hustle (she was previously nominated for Best Actress in Winter's Bone in 2010).

The subject of the biopic, Ms Mangano has 100 patents to her name and remains one of the most popular presenters on America's QVC home shopping network.

The cinematic pair are also reportedly working together on The End of Everything - a riches to rags love story.
