Bradley confirms Untitled Cameron Crowe/Hawaii Project

Bradley has a lot of upcoming/in development projects and most of them are announced in the last few months. One of them is the still untitled Cameron Crowe project, and it’s also known as the Hawaii project. Last last year it was announced that Bradley was in talks to join Emma Stone who already joined the project in July 2012. Rachel McAdams signed on to the project, for a supporting part, a few months ago. A report reveals the following plot:

A defense contractor (Cooper) who is overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Stone) to scuttle the launch. Mystical island forces and a talking computer also play a part.

Now Bradley confirms his involvement in the movie to a reporter of the Huffington Post and also reveals Danny McBride joined the cast as well.

Bradley Cooper has made it a priority to work with great directors in his career — examples range from Neil Burger and Joe Carnahan to Derek Cianfrance and David O. Russell — and he’s looking to continue that trend with Cameron Crowe. In an interview with HuffPost Entertainment to discuss the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Cianfrance’s “The Place Beyond The Pines,” Cooper confirmed that he will star in Crowe’s next untitled feature.

“Yeah, we start shooting in September,” Cooper said about the film, which he was first attached to in a Deadline.com report back in October of 2012. “I can’t really say anything about the script, but I’m excited.”

Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams will star in Crowe’s feature along with Danny McBride. Cooper said McBride had also signed on for the new film, news that was confirmed by McBride’s representatives. No word yet on the role the “This Is The End” star will play in the project.

Crowe’s film, his first since “We Bought A Zoo” in 2011, has remained cloaked in mystery, but TheWrap reporter Jeff Sneider suggested that it could be a rewrite of an old script from the writer-director called “Deep Tiki,” a film set partially in Hawaii. (Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were attached as the leads to that screenplay in 2008.) A recent casting notice looking for a young boy named Mitchell, who “is obsessed with Hawaiian myths and folklore, and always has a video camera in his hands, taping everything,” lends credence to that suggestion.
