What happens when the sexiest man alive teams up with the world's great living director? Well, we're about to find out, because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Bradley Cooper and Steven Spielberg have signed on to lead and direct, respectively, the upcoming military biopic "American Sniper."
And it looks like the duo already has the Oscars planted dead-center in their crosshairs.
Based on the memoir "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History" by former U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, "American Sniper" tells the story of how Kyle earned the highest kill count in American military history (160 confirmed kills out of 255 reported kills, for those interested in the grisly statistics). After serving four tours of duty during the Iraq War, Kyle was dubbed the Devil of Ramadi by enemy insurgents, who placed an $80,000 bounty on his head. After returning home and retiring from the service, Kyle was murdered by a fellow veteran reportedly suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
It's a story filled with both heroics and tragedy, which is likely what drew Cooper to the film; besides starring in "American Sniper," Cooper is named as co-producer alongside Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan.
Now they've been joined by Spielberg, who will not only direct but also co-produce the film, which basically ensures that it's going to get the fast track from production partners Warner Bros. and DreamWorks.
A legendary director, an Oscar nominated superstar, a New York Times number-one bestseller and a real American hero?
Natalie Portman seems to have everything. At 31 she's got a new hubby, a baby, an Oscar in her back pocket and the epic mega-blockbuster "Thor: The Dark World" coming out later this year. So things are pretty great.
Except for the fact that she can't seem to lasso in enough cowboys for the oh-so-troubled "Jane Got a Gun."
This week: The romantic comedy gets an Oscar-winning upgrade with "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro.
Also new this week is Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in the police drama "Broken City," Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in the road-trip comedy "The Guilt Trip" and the coming-of-age rock 'n' roll drama "Not Fade Away." Get More »
David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" was a B.F.D. during this year's awards season, not just because it made Jennifer Lawrence a giant star — with meme fare to prove it — but also because it drew out all the feels.
With the eight-time Oscar-nominated flick poised to hit DVD next week, MTV now presents this exclusive glimpse at the film's alternate ending. In the new scene, the off-kilter little family unit's leader, Robert De Niro's obsessive Pat Sr., is having an outright conniption over the very presence of a Vikings shirt in his Eagles-only abode. The nerve of some people. Get More »
Yes, it is possible to fall even more in love with Bradley Cooper.
As production on David O. Russell's "American Hustle" was forced to shut down today in response to the heightened alert situation in Boston - following Monday's horrific marathon bombing - the Oscar-nominated "Silver Linings Playbook" star decided to step out above Gov. Deval Patrick's city-wide shutdown order to pay a visit to one of the survivors, Jeff Bauman.
Director David O. Russell's much-fussed Abscam movie now has its title, and rather than the controversial (albeit arguably appropriate) original name "American Bulls**t," it's going to be called the much more palatable "American Hustle."
The new verbage is meant to reflect the story's true story-based premise — a con man and his mistress are teamed up with an FBI agent to run a sting operation on several corrupt politicians and criminals — but it also helps to remove the stigma of an expletive in neon lights turning away potential audiences.
