Okay twist my arm…yes please!
HuffPost is reporting that Clint Eastwood wants Bradley Cooper – Coop buddy – if Dirty Harry says he wants you, sign on the dotted line already.
Bradley Cooper is reportedly mulling over an offer to star opposite Beyonce in Clint Eastwood’s film “A Star is Born.”
Eastwood allegedly wants Cooper as the leading man for the movie, according toVariety.
The director’s version of “A Star is Born” will be a remake of the 1937 film. The movie is about an aging rocker who falls in love with a young, rising star. Screenwriter Will Fetters (REMEMBER ME) based the aging rocker character on Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, imagining how he would last in the industry 20 years later had he survived.
The Press Association reports Leonardo DiCaprio (Pass), Christian Bale (Doable) and Will Smith (Maybe) have all turned down the “Star Is Born” role. Tom Cruise (No thanks) was the latest to be linked to the part.
“The Hangover” actor may be contemplating the role in Eastwood’s Warner Bros. remake, but according to Variety, “there is no deal in place and Cooper has a very busy schedule.”
A busy schedule, indeed.
Cooper is currently in negotiations to star in J. Blakeson’s crime thriller “Bad Blood and Trouble” at MRC, as well as “The Hangover Part III” and David O. Russell’s “American Bullshit,” The Hollywood Reporter details.
