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.

Bradley Cooper American Sniper, Spielberg
Usually known for moving with confidence from project to project and working at a prodigious rate, it would seem that Steven Spielberg can't settle on his next film. For a while, it looked as though that the blockbuster "Robopocalypse" would follow "Lincoln," but he put that on hold at the beginning of the year. Then this spring he put his name to "American Sniper," a project that seemed right up his alley with Bradley Cooper attached to star. But now it looks like he's not ready to direct that one either.

American Hustle Bradley Cooper Christian Bale
Yeah these haircuts look amazing right? Seems like the stuff of a good, "The Informant!" style comedy, doesn't it? Well, hold on to that thought as Sony has stressed that David O. Russell's upcoming "American Hustle" is strictly a drama, though we think the '70s setting and wardrobe are still pretty lol-worthy. But we're sure once the story gets moving, all of that will be pushed to side because it's based on a pretty fascinating true tale.

Cameron Crowe has been keeping details on his next film a little bit on the down low. He's not quite Noah Baumbach, but aside from the cast— Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone— we don't really know much else about the film. Granted it's expected to be reworking of the filmmaker's aborted "Deep Tiki," which he was once slated to make with Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon, but what exactly he's changed remains to be seen. But we do now know one more cast member who's coming aboard.
