Bradley Cooper and ‘There Will Be Blood’ filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson are set to team up for Anderson’s 1970’s San Fernando Valley Project.
Plot details are being kept top secret, but the film is said to involve multiple storylines revolving around a kid actor attending high school in the Valley. At this stage, it is unknown what role Cooper would be playing.
Anderson wrote and will produce the movie via his Ghoulardi Film Company banner, along with Sarah Murphy.
The project was initially due to start production in Spring/Summer 2020 before the pandemic hit. It is now looking likely that it will commence in the Autumn depending on how and when productions are able to begin shooting again in Los Angeles.
Cooper was last seen in ‘A Star is Born’ and ‘The Mule’ and reprised his voice role as Rocket in ‘Avengers: End Game’. His upcoming projects include ‘Nightmare Alley’. He has also set his next behind-the-camera project— an untitled Leonard Bernstein feature for Netflix. The movie will see Cooper direct and star as the legendary composer as well as produce with Todd Phillips, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
