Before directing such films as "The Fighter" and "Silver Linings Playbook," director David O Russell was working on a 2008 movie, called "Nailed," starring Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, and James Marsden. But before production could end, James Caan left due to arguments with Russell and financiers were no longer able to fund the project. Eventually the entire thing fell apart.
But despite several unshot scenes, editors were able to put something together and turn it into a film called "Accidental Love," which will be released on VOD on February 10h and then get a limited theatrical release on February 20th. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: A small town waitress gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head causing unpredictable behavior that leads her to Washington, DC, where sparks fly when she meets a clueless young senator who takes up her cause - but what happens when love interferes with what you stand for?
No doubt the reasons James Caan, a hardcore conservative, got into "creative differences" with Russell, a liberal, over a film that champions government healthcare.

It's got Tracy Morgan in it pre brain damage. So it's got that going for it which is pretty good.

LOL No wonder Russell went on to just make carbon copy, Oscar-bait films. That plot sounds like an episode of Family Guy. Had all his plots before "The Fighter" sound this convoluted and contrived?!

I hear he always has had one actor at least annoyed by him in every film. Christian Bale even has issues with his style and I think the only reason he came back was a guaranteed Oscar-nom after already getting a win.
