Holy crap, it’s true: Red-hot star Jennifer Lawrence will be playing a HSN invention queen Joe Mangano in a movie!
HSN CEO Mindy Grossman posted the story from The Hollywood Reporter about the project on Facebook.
Lawrence had been rumored to be playing Mangano, but it is apparently a done deal.
Talented director David O. Russell will be teaming up again with Lawrence for “Joy,” which is slated for a release on Christmas 2015, according to the trade newspaper.
However, The Reporter got the wrong network in its story, which said, “The film will tell the story of the Mangano’s transformation from a single mom to a QVC star.”
The script for the movie comes from the same woman who wrote “Bridesmaids.”
