David O. Russell
Russell is best known for critically acclaimed black comedies such as Flirting with Disaster (1996), Three Kings (1999) and I Heart Huckabees (2004) -- and, in many cases, on-set conflict. An infamous video of the filmmaker unloading on Huckabees star Lily Tomlin went viral, earning Russell a reputation as an undeniably talented but unpredictable personality.
In 2010, Russell picked up his first Golden Globe nomination, which was followed by an Oscar nod, for the knockout boxing drama The Fighter.
When three American soldiers stationed in Iraq find a map they believe will take them to a huge cache of stolen Kuwaiti gold hidden near their base, they embark on a secret mission that's destined to change everything.
