David O. Russell is putting together a film about Abscam, a large sting operation that involved politicians, foreign nationals, law enforcement, and some generally unsavory folks. And he's titling it American Bullshit. That sounds like fun, right?

Well, this thing has gradually gone from good to great with the likes of Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Louie C.K., Jeremy Renner, and most recently, Jennifer Lawrence.

It's hard not to get excited about this cast, director, and premise, which is exactly why Mark Wahlberg is checking his phone like a a fourteen year-old Asian girl, wondering if he's in a dead cell zone or something because there has to be a good reason why Russell hasn't called him yet.
