While it wasn't quite a world premiere, over the weekend, the AFI Film Festival was lucky enough to screen the first six minutes of David O. Russell's forthcoming "American Hustle." And yes, at least from what was shown, this should live up to expectations, with our man on the ground saying, "from what we’ve seen thus far that frothy period will be massively entertaining indeed." And with about a month to go before this hits theaters, Columbia Pictures is finally getting ready to uh, hustle, this flick.

American Hustle
Last night in Los Angeles on the first full day of programming for AFI Fest this year, director David O. Russell and his eclectic body of cinematic work was celebrated at the historic Egyptian Theatre, and he also brought the first six minutes of his highly-anticipated new film, “American Hustle.” However, a host of technical issues—including screening the first two minutes almost completely without sound—led the director to grow a little ornery (“We should probably shut it off,” he said, before escaping the stage to settle the problem). But even those couldn’t dismantle the comic energy and early promise that his latest effort sampled.

Bradley Cooper Emma Stone Cameron Crowe Untitled Hawaii
22 days into production and still without a title, we'll gladly settle for this set pic from Cameron Crowe's untitled, Hawaii set comedy (let's hope we don't have to type that out too often). It's our first look at the two leads, Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, in the film, but they are far from the only stars.

Without any festival appearance or advance screenings for press, David O. Russell's "American Hustle" remains the biggest, most exciting mystery of the fall movie season. Awards player or chewy piece of entertainment? Maybe it's both?

The newest trend on TV—which, like most trends, isn’t exactly new—is taking big-screen properties to the small screen. Joining the forthcoming limited series takes on “Fargo” and “The Exorcist,” Deadline is reporting that the Bradley Cooper-starring vehicle “Limitless” will get a small-screen adaptation of its very own.

While some have ceded the Oscar race to "12 Years a Slave," the might of David O. Russell can't be forgotten. On paper, "Silver Linings Playbook" didn't look like much more than a quirky rom-com, but after storming the Toronto International Film Festival and winning over critics and audiences, it played huge with Oscar voters, with eight nominations (the entire lead cast got nods) and a win for Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress. And certainly, while this might look like some high-gloss entertainment, Russell usually has some more subversive notes to play.

As we noted yesterday, Bradley Cooper has spent the last few years making a conscious effort work with filmmakers of esteem on projects with some weight and substance — folks like Susanne Bier, Derek Cianfrance, David O. Russell, Cameron Crowe and Clint Eastwood. But is the actor now ready to sit in a recording booth and collect some easy, low-paying money for a voice role? If the folks at Marvel have their way, that could be the case.

We'll say this...Bradley Cooper sure has embarrassment of talent who want to work with him. The actor has used his "The Hangover" bump to line up projects with a variety of esteemed filmmakers, with Cooper pairing up over the last couple years with Susanne Bier ("Serena"), Derek Cianfrance ("The Place Beyond The Pines"), David O. Russell ("Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle") and Cameron Crowe (the upcoming, untitled project that shoots this fall). And he was nearly about to cap it all off with Steven Spielberg, who was set to direct "American Sniper" this spring. But just a few months later he bounced out, however it seems one legend will replace another.

Okay, let's do the background stuff on this first. You might remember that at the beginning of the year, rumors swirled that Bradley Cooper would be taking the role of Lance Armstrong in a movie slated to be produced by J.J. Abrams. Cooper said he had "no idea" that such a project existed, though he did say he was interested in playing the disgraced cyclist. And well, that's certainly true as Cooper is now pedalling toward a rival project over at Warner Bros., though he isn't committed to play Armstrong just yet.
