Bradley to star in “Dark Invasion”

Page Six is reporting that Bradley is going to produce and star in the upcoming movie Dark Invasion.

Bradley Cooper will look a lot different as a World War I-era NYPD captain than he did as a permed ’70s era FBI agent in “American Hustle.”

Warner Bros. just bought the rights to the Howard Blum thriller “Dark Invasion,” due from HarperCollins on Feb. 11, and Cooper is attached to star as NYPD Capt. Tom Tunney. Cooper is also producing the film with John Lesher.

“It’s a true story about the hunt for the first terrorist cell in America,” Blum told me. “It’s 1915 and a cell of German spies are spreading anthrax, and they explode a bomb in the US Capitol Building and shoot the nation’s richest man, J.P. Morgan Jr. A special squad of New York cops, headed by Tunney, is formed to hunt them down. And it’s all true.”

In a pre-publication review, Kirkus called it “masterful” and “engaging.”

The screenplay is by Taylor Sheridan, who played Deputy Hale on the TV show “Sons of Anarchy” before he turned to writing.

Bradley to star in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Bradley is returning to Broadway this fall to take on the role of John Merrick in The Elephant Man.

If you’ve ever had the burning desire to see one of the hottest film stars of the moment bray, “I am not an animal!” you’re in luck. Bradley Cooper, who just received his second Oscar nomination in as many years for his fussy, conflicted G-man in David O. Russell’s American Hustle, will be returning to Broadway after an eight-year absence, the actor’s reps tell EW. (His last appearance was opposite Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in 2006?s Three Days of Rain, for which he got very good notices.)

The red-hot actor will headline a revival of Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man, playing John Merrick, the severely deformed, soulful figure memorably embodied on film in David Lynch’s 1980 film version by John Hurt. The play, unlike the film, has the leading actor suggest deformity through physicality without the aid of makeup or prosthetics, so you’ll get to see Cooper in all his golden-boy glory, just like in the large pic right here, which highlights Mr. Cooper’s 2012 performance in the play at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. This marks the second Broadway revival of Pomerance’s Tony-winning play, after a 2002 production starring Billy Crudup and Kate Burton, who were both nominated for Tonys for their work.

No word yet on whether Patricia Clarkson (who played Mrs. Kendal, the actress who befriends Merrick) or Alessandro Nivola (who played Dr. Treves, and also happens to costar in Hustle with Cooper) will rejoin People‘s former Sexiest Man Alive for the Broadway run, but further details are promised at a later date.
