Cameras were rolling in Wilmington the other night as director David O. Russell started work on “Joy,” a movie about Joy Mangano, the single mom from Long Island who invented the Miracle Mop. Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the title character, could be glimpsed between takes. This is the actress’s third film with Russell, having won an Oscar for her role in “Silver Linings Playbook” and a nomination for her role in “American Hustle.”
