O. Russell Spreads "Joy" On Xmas 2015

Rumored earlier this year, it now seems that filmmaker David O. Russell has settled on "Joy" as his next movie. 20th Century Fox has also locked in a Christmas 2015 release date.

The film is a biopic about Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano and has been developed as a star vehicle for frequent collaborator Jennifer Lawrence, though there's no confirmation she's onboard.

Mangano was a single mother of three when she developed the prototype for mop in 1990. The product became a huge seller on QVC, she now has over 100 patents and a key role on the Home Shopping Network.
