Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell continue to find silver linings in the movie awards season.

The star and director of the award-winning Silver Linings Playbook will re-team for a new drama, The Ends of the Earth, according to a release from the Weinstein Company.

She is the most dedicated person I know,” Russell said in the release. “Her acting is effortless and she always makes it look easy.”

The film is a fact-based love story about powerful oil tycoon Ernest Marland, who lost everything when he was caught in an affair. The script is by Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio.

Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook collaboration with Lawrence led to her second Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe award and a SAG award.
