Bradley Cooper has dropped out of one high profile project, but he has attached his name to another one!
The 38-year-old actor had to leave the film Jane Got a Gun due to scheduling conflicts after filming on his upcoming David O. Russell-directed flick American Hustle was delayed due to the Boston bombings. No word yet on who will take the role in the film, which will star Natalie Portman.
Bradley just booked a new role in Steven Spielberg‘s next film American Sniper, based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Bradley actually optioned the rights to the book himself and set up the project at Warner Bros, according to Deadline.
The film follows “Texas native Kyle’s journey from rodeo cowboy to SEAL Chief with the highest number of sniper kills in U.S. military history.”
UPDATE: Looks like Bradley has yet another project on his slate! He will star in the film Chef, about Paris chef Adam Jones “who blows his status as an up and coming chef when controlled substances lead to out of control behavior. Jones straightens out and returns to Paris sober, and becomes devoted to building a restaurant that can attain three Michelin stars, the mark of cuisine supremacy,” according to Deadline.
