David O. Russell to receive award at LA fest

Continue reading below

Director David O. Russell , who’s in Boston filming a movie about the Abscam scandal that’s now being called “American Hustle,” will be honored at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June. He’ll be the festival’s Guest Director and will receive the Spirit of Independence award for his films, which include the Lowell movie “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” which was based on the novel by Massachusetts author Matthew Quick . According to the festival, which released news of Russell’s honor last week, the director’s latest Boston film, which stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams, will be released this December. That’s a pretty quick turnaround, but the timing means that this one is Oscar bait. Production on “American Hustle” was temporarily shut down last week after the Boston Marathon bombings, but Deadline.com reports that the crew is now back to work.
