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.
