Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

That seems to be Jennifer Lawrence's philosophy when it comes to career choices. Deadline reports the Oscar-winning actress may re-team with her "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" director David O. Russell.

Russell is eyeing a deal to rewrite and direct a film about Joy Mangano, who went from struggling Long Island single to the successful inventor of the Miracle Mop. And, naturally, he wants Lawrence to star in it.

Since he's directed her to one Academy Award win and one nomination, it wouldn't be a bad idea for Lawrence to take on the role. Then again, the in-demand actress has a full plate -- she's filming the last two installments of the "Hunger Games" franchise, will be promoting "X-Men: Days of Future Past" this spring, and is set to reunite with director Gary Ross for "East of Eden" and "Burial Rites" adaptations. Whew!

But this is Jennifer Lawrence we're talking about. If anybody can bend the laws of time and space, it's her.
