Oscar-nominated director David O. Russell has confirmed reports he'll be reteaming with his Silver Linings Playbook leading lady Jennifer Lawrence for a new romance.

The actress will lead the cast of drama The Ends of the Earth, about an oil tycoon who loses everything because of an affair.

It will be Russell's third project with Lawrence - she will reportedly have a cameo in his next film, starring her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams.

Announcing her casting in The Ends of the Earth, the moviemaker tells The Hollywood Reporter, "She (Lawrence) is the most dedicated person I know. She is devoted to her family and they have been the true inspiration for her character and integrity. Her acting is effortless and she always makes it look easy."
