Bradley Cooper to Star in Suspense Thriller
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The man of the moment right now has got to be Bradley Cooper. Virtually every big movie that comes out has his name attached to it, but he’s finally settled on a somewhat complicated suspense thriller called DARK FIELDS. Neil Burger (THE ILLLUSIONIST) will direct the film for Relativity Media.
Variety describes the film as: “a what-if story about a designer drug that can make you rich and powerful. Eddie (Cooper) is a down-and-out New York writer until he possesses a pill that gives him the ability to access the full capacity of his brain. He soon realizes that his newfound intelligence and success come at a hefty price as mysterious forces begin to pursue him.”
That sounds like a complicated concept to me. Films like that can usually go either way, so here’s hoping Cooper and Burger can pull it off.
