The much anticipated star studded David O’ Russell film, American Hustle, has finally released a teaser trailer on Good Morning America. The film is based on the ABSCAM sting operation which forced a con artist and his partner in crime to work with a federal agent on turning in other cons, mobsters, and particularly the corrupt politicians, which took place in New Jersey during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The film reunites O’Russell with many of his stars including his leads Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Bradley Cooper who play con artist Irving Rosenfeld, partner in crime and mistress Sydney Prosser, and FBI agent Richie DiMasso, respectively. Rounding up the cast are Jennifer Lawrence, who recently won an Oscar for her role as Tiffany in O’Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K. and Robert De Niro.
Poised to be a contender for this year’s award season, American Hustle opens everywhere Christmas day.
