Jacki Weaver Sees Some “Silver Linings”

Aussie actress Jacki Weaver (“Animal Kingdom”) is in talks to join the cast of David O. Russell’s “The Silver Linings Playbook” at The Weinstein Company says The Hollywood Reporter.

An adaptation of Matthew Quick’s novel, Bradley Cooper plays a former teacher who was sent to a mental institution for depression and is now on a quest for self discovery.

Weaver will play Bradley Cooper’s mother, who takes care of her son after his release. Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro also star and shooting kicks off later this Fall.
