Why break up a winning team, after all?

Jennifer Lawrence is sticking with the director and co-star who helped guide her to what will probably be an Oscar win later this month as she signs on to join the cast of what used to be called "American Bullsh**," according to Deadline.

The film reunites Lawrence with her "Silver Linings Playbook" director, David O. Rusell, and co-star, Bradley Cooper. It's actually an even more extensive reunion for the director, as the cast also includes Christian Bale and Amy Adams, who starred in Russell's "The Fighter."

The project chronicles the initiation and implementation of Abscam, a 1970s FBI sting operation that took down a bunch of U.S. congressmen. Katniss Everdeen will be married to Bruce Wayne in the movie, as Lawrence is set to play Bale's wife. The cast also includes Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye!) and Louis C.K. (Louie!).

The film also marks Lawrence's third team-up with Bradley Cooper, as they'll be seen together later this year in the period drama "Serena," opening Sept. 27. Lawrence will return as Katniss in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," opening Nov. 22, and as Mystique in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," opening July 18, 2014.

And we all know she's totally going to win the Oscar, right? Oh yeah.
