Los Angeles, April 13 (IANS) Veteran actor Robert De Niro says David O. Russell is among those directors to whom he can commit for a project even before he gets the script in hand.

"David O. Russell was telling me the story in bits and pieces and so on for about a year, I guess. And then finally started sending pages, then the whole script. I think he sent some pages or half of it or something, whatever. And there's certain directors, they say they're doing something, you're going to say you'll do it, you'll commit way before the script is written," De Niro said in a statement.

The actor has worked with Russell in three projects, with "Joy" being one of them.

"Joy" tells the tale of self-made real life entrepreneur and inventor of the Miracle Mop, Joy Mangano and the story of the journey towards the success.

The film based on a true story will be airing on Star Movies Select HD on Wednesday.
