Last month, we learned that Bradley Cooper had been offered a role opposite Ryan Gosling in Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines. Well now it looks like Cooper’s deal is closed, as Variety reports that he’s now officially on board the crime drama. Written by Cianfrance and Ben Coccio (Zero Day), the story follows a motorcycle stunt rider (Gosling) who becomes a bank robber to support his newborn son. Characterized as being reminiscent of The Godfather and The Deer Hunter, Cooper will play a rookie cop who crosses paths with Gosling’s character.

The Hangover Part II star is a busy guy as of late, as he’s poised to play Lucifer in Alex Proyas’ Paradise Lost, is shooting The Words this month, and has been offered the lead in the remake of The Crow, though that project is currently caught up in some legal troubles. Production on The Place Beyond the Pines is set to start this July in New York.
