Before he returns to the wolf pack this Autumn to make The Hangover Part III, Bradley Cooper is making sure his future is all planned out with a few projects set for after that sequel has wrapped. Variety reports that he is currently in talks to star in Bad Blood and Trouble for director J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and he is also considering an offer to join the cast of Clint Eastwood’s long-delayed A Star Is Born remake.
Bad Blood and Trouble is set in the 1950s and centres on a Miami private detective (Bradley Cooper) who is in love with a married woman. Complications arise when her husband is targeted by a criminal group. Production will begin in the second half of 2013 in London.
It isn’t known what role he is considering in A Star Is Born, which already has Beyoncé Knowles attached to star. He would seems a bit young for the main part of an aging star whose career is slipping away from him and drowns himself in alcohol, but it’s possible that’s who he’ll play.
Neither of these projects will come for a whiel though, as after The Hangover Part III, the actor will start production on American Bullshit for director David O. Russell. There may be enough of a window between that project and Bad Blood and Trouble to squeeze in A Star Is Born.
