Jacki Weaver joining Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook?

Oscar nominated Animal Kingdom star Jacki Weaver is in negotiations to join David O. Russell‘s follow-up to The Fighter, The Silver Linings Playbook.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Weaver would play the mother of star Bradley Cooper in the offbeat romantic comedy.

Cooper’s character is a former high school teacher who has recently been released from an institution where he was being treated for depression. Now being cared for by his mother, his attempts to win back his ex-wife prove futile, and he instead strikes up a friendship with an eccentric neighbour (Jennifer Lawrence).

Weaver will also be seen in the Nicolas Stoller comedy Five Year Engagement opposite Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, as well as Park Chan-wook‘s English-language debut Stoker, starring fellow Aussies Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.

Discuss: Glad to see Weaver book some big international projects?
