Third time's a charm!

Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly in talks to star in yet another David O. Russell film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director wants to see J.Law star in his upcoming flick about the inventor of Miracle Mop, Joy Mangano.

The movie details Mangano's rise from Long Island singer and mother to QVC star in just a matter of years.

And if history is any indicator, the two working together are a moviemaking forced to be reckoned with.

Both have been nominated for countless awards for their past two films, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

In fact, Lawrence won two Golden Globes for her performances in the past two years and won the Oscar in 2013. She has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category in next month's Academy Awards.

Russell is known to work with the same actors and actress on his films. Bradley Cooper starred alongside J.Law in both of the aforementioned pictures.

The director recently received some heat after comparing the 23-year-old actress's Hunger Games schedule to slavery.

"I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they're printing money," he told The New York Daily NewsConfidenti@l on Friday, Jan. 10. "But she's a very alive person."

"I'll tell you what it is about that girl—talk about 12 years of slavery, that's what the franchise is," the screenwriter continued. "And I'm going to get in so much trouble for saying that." 

Shortly after he made the comment, he released a statement apologizing for his misstep.
