Jennifer Lawrence has been tipped to play the role of Joy Mangano: an awesome entrepreneurial single mother from Long Island who becomes one of the USA's most successful business people with her 'self-wringing Miracle Mop invention'. Sounds like a match made in heaven if you ask me.
Director of American Hustle, David O. Russell, will be helming the originally untitled Fox film from 2000 which sees him now in the very premature stages of writing and directing. More than capable of doing the role justice, designs are being made on after having earned herself: the Best Actress Oscar for 's Silver Linings Playbook, and a Best Supporting Actress nomination in American Hustle to play the titular Mangano.
Deadline have said that:
The project has a script by , who with got Oscar nominations for scripting Bridesmaids. This is a rags-to-riches story of a woman who worked three jobs to support her kids and who overcame long odds to finally get her due with an invention that became an HSN sensation and allowed Mangano to clean up. It is a strong empowerment tale.
As a big fan of both and tales of female empowerment, the Joy Mangano Biopic can't fail in my eyes- what are your thoughts?
