Bradley Cooper is trading one hot young Hollywood leading lady for another. Following his stint in David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” opposite Jennifer Lawrence, Cooper is in talks to join Emma Stone in the new movie from Cameron Crowe.
The news comes from Deadline, along with the clarification that there’s “no deal yet” but that there should be one soon. The site also says that this untitled project will have “a tone reminiscent” of “Almost Famous” and “Jerry Maguire.”
Meanwhile, /Film is reporting that the project could be called “Deep Tiki,” the name used for the film when it was first announced four years ago. The casting of Cooper would align with the released plot of the film at that time. It reads:
A 37-year-old disgraced US weapons consultant named Brian Gilcrest is disliked by most everyone. His only friend is a techie named Jeremy “a super-smart and highly aware computer”. As a response to aggression from China, Gilcrest is deployed to a dormant military base in Hawaii to supervise the launch of an advanced spy satellite. Together with the anal and humorless Major Lisa Ng, he must secure the blessings of the native Hawaiian council before the launch. Gilcrest also gets a chance to meet with Tracy, the one love of his life who got away, along with her husband and two kids. On the island he discovers himself.
Crowe is expected to start filming this movie in the spring, and The Playlist previously reported the movie could hit theaters in 2014.
