In the last few years Bradley Cooper has had plenty of success in front of the camera, but now he’s looking to turn director and according to Deadline he may have found the right project, Honeymoon With Harry.
If he does take it on, he’s also likely to star, and may also reunite with Silver Linings Playbook co-star Robert De Niro for the movie.
The script has been around for a while and both Cooper & De Niro took part in a table read back in 2010, however it’s only now that Warner Bros. is really trying to push it into production.
He follow is about ‘a formerly self-centered womanizing booze-hound who changed his ways when he met a girl and fell in love. He’s loathed by the girl’s dad, who recognizes himself in the young man. They get engaged anyway. When she dies tragically just before their wedding, the devastated groom heads off on their honeymoon to drown his sorrows and drink himself to death. Who does he meet but his almost father-in-law, who has come to spread his daughter’s ashes on her favorite beach.’
De Niro would play the father.
At the moment it’s just one of several projects Cooper is eyeing as his directorial debut, but currently seems to be the frontrunner.
