Bradley Cooper is attached to star in an untitled comedy-drama based on a pitch from writer Allen Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). According to Variety, Cooper would play “an injured baseball player on the mend” and that the script has similar themes to Scent of a Woman and The Rookie. Cooper can currently be seen in the dumb-fun action flick The A-Team. He’s also signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller Dark Fields, the man vs. wolf tale The Grey, and will return for the The Hangover 2.
In other casting news, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum have signed on to star in Michael Sucsy’s romantic drama The Vow. THR reports that the film is about a real-life newlywed New Mexico couple, played by McAdams and Tatum, “who end up in a car crash. The wife is put in a coma, where she is cared for by her devoted husband. When she comes to, without any memory of her husband or their marriage, the husband woos her and attempts to wins her heart again.” Hopefully, she’ll fall in love with her IV fluid when she discovers it has more charisma.
