Yeah, that story has been around for years. Neither director has publicly spoken about it, but it doesn't really come as any surprise since Russell's known for being a notorious prick.

It's definitely a weird story, but hearing about his toxic and abusive behaviour on his own sets is much more alarming, I think. That George Clooney story is really bad, for example.

The thing that I can't help but think is what happens when an actor who was in a film by either of these directors works with the other one. I wonder what the other director thinks, though I'm more wondering about Nolan. Bale and Washington have been in an O Russell film (Bale a couple as well) and I'm sure there are more. He probably doesn't care but I just have to wonder if Bale told him how the American Hustle set was and Nolan was just like "Yep, he's not changed one bit". Or if he heard Washington was going to be in this new O Russell joint (I hate that he's been giving any kind of money backing or finacing or anything like that, but I'll just avoid it so that he won't get my money or even an opinion on his film) and had a chill go up his spine. There's no need to hold a grudge but it's fun to think about the possibilities.
