Jennifer Lawrence Set For Lead Role In Magic Mop Biopic
Jennifer Lawrence has finally confirmed that she will star as Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano in a new film.
After recent rumours she was involved in the project, J-Law admitted she'd accepted the role over text on US chat show Live With Kelly and Michael.She explained that director David O Russell texted her at 4am to offer her the job.
"He was like, 'I think I want to make a movie about the woman who invented the [Miracle] Mop. You want to do it?'
"I was like, 'Yeah'. I can just imagine David looking at somebody mopping and being like, 'Yeah, that's my next screenplay.'"
She first collaborated with O Russell for Silver Linings Playbook - for which she won the best actress Oscar - and teamed up with him again last year for the Oscar-nominated American Hustle.
There's no word yet on a release date, but keep it locked to MTV News to find out more about J-Law's new movie!
