Michael Peña has lined up his next big project…
The 37-year-old Mexican American actor has been cast in director David O. Russell’s next film.
The Sony Pictures drama, which was formerly known as American Bullshit, is inspired by the true story of a notorious financial con artist and his mistress/partner in crime, who were forced to work with an overly ambitious federal agent to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters and politicians.
Peña joins a cast that includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.
The film is set for a December 13 release.
Peña, whose recent credits include a Spirit Award-nominated role in David Ayer’s End Of Watch and Gangster Squad, recently completed voice work on DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo, which is set to be released in July. He also just wrapped the Diego Luna-directed Chavez.
He has also been cast as the lead in Fox’s drama pilot The List.
Russell’s film is set for a December 13 release.
