Jennifer Lawrence To Play Mop Lady?

J-Law reported to be in the frame to play inventor of Miracle Mop for David O Russell...

Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly being lined-up for a biopic of the woman who invented the Miracle Mop.

American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell apparently wants J-Law to work with him again on a movie project about the life of Joy Mangano.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that the filmmaker is currently in talks with Fox 2000 about making the movie, which would follow Mangano's journey from a single mum in Long Island to a star of home shopping channel QVC.

A well-know face on home shopping TV in the US, Mangano is a serial inventor whose most-famous invention has become a global success.

THR reports: "The project is seen as a female empowerment tale and has a script by Annie Mumolo, the scribe behind Bridesmaids."

American Hustle has been a box office hit and has secured 10 Oscar nods.
