Jennifer Lawrence looks set to make another film with David O Russell.

The Hunger Games actress has already worked with the director on Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle and could now team up with him for a third film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

David is currently in talks about directing a biopic about Joy Mangano, the creator of the Miracle Mop, and sources have said he wants Jennifer in the lead role.

The film would follow Mangano as she went from being a single mum to a star of home shopping television.

It could be a good move for Jen, 23, as David previously directed her to an Oscar win in Silver Linings Playbook, and she is also up for an Academy Award for American Hustle.
