Lawrence: "I can just imagine David looking at somebody mopping and being like, 'Yeah, that's my next screenplay'"

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has confirmed that her American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell has asked her to take the lead role in his new film, a biopic of Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano.

During an interview on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Oscar winner Lawrence said: "He [Russell] recently texted me at, I think, four in the morning, and he was like, 'I think I want to make a movie about the woman who invented the [Miracle] Mop. You want to do it?'

"I was like, 'Yeah'. I can just imagine David looking at somebody mopping and being like, 'Yeah, that's my next screenplay'."

Lawrence can currently be seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
