Jack Huston is the latest actor to join the cast of David O Russell's new film project.

The Silver Linings Playbook director is teaming up again with Jennifer Lawrence, who will play Christian Bale's on-screen wife in the untitled corruption drama, previously known as American Bulls***.

Now Deadline reports Boardwalk Empire star Jack is joining Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner in the film.

The drama is based on the real-life story of FBI sting operation Abscam, which exposed corrupt politicians in the 1970s.

Christian plays a notorious con artist who teams up with his mistress, played by Amy to carry out scams.

They are caught by an FBI agent played by Bradley. He does a deal with them to get them to help his major sting operation that ended in the arrest of several major mob criminals and bent politicians.
