Louis C.K. is enjoying a dream run at the moment, earning Emmy awards for his acclaimed show Louie – over which he has complete creative control – and finally breaking into movies in a big way.

Though he lost out the lead role in The Descendants to George Clooney, he is set to star in Woody Allen’s upcoming flick, and, according to THR, is in talks for David O. Russell’s follow-up to Best Picture nominee Silver Linings Playbook.

The untitled picture, formerly known as American Bulls**t, already has Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams attached.

Written by Eric Singer, it tells of a true sting operation of Atlantic City gangsters and corrupt politicians conducted by the FBI.

The film is set to hit cinemas late 2013.
