Robert De Niro has confirmed he is reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence in a film about the inventor of the Miracle Mop.
The veteran star will play “a father” alongside his Silver Linings Playbook co-star in director David O. Russell’s film, titled Joy.
He says, “Yeah, I am going to do something with them. I am going to play a father.”
The movie recounts the real rags-to-riches tale about Joy Mangano, the woman who became a millionairess after launching the cleaning product on American shopping network QVC.
Lawrence is set to play Mangano.
This will be the third time De Niro has worked with Lawrence and Russell – in 2012, the actor portrayed Bradley Cooper’s dad in Silver Linings Playbook and he also made a cameo in 2013’s American Hustle.
