Up next for Bradley Cooper is the Oscar campaign for Silver Linings Playbook, which is being toted as a lock for a Best Picture nomination and might actually nab Cooper himself a nom in Best Actor. (Wait, the guy who has sex with Michael Ian Black in Wet Hot American Summer might get an Oscar? Yes, the guy who has sex with Michael Ian Black in Wet Hot American Summer might get an Oscar.) But Coop stays grinding: He’s currently in talks for his next project, a lead role in Cameron Crowe’s new flick.
There’s not much actual info on what this thing is about: We know it stars Emma Stone and, yeah, that’s about it. Well, Deadline does say it’s a “a two-hander with a tone reminiscent of past Crowe films Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire.” So did Crowe actually go to Sony Pictures and say “Hey guys! Uh, remember my good movies? This one’s gonna be like one of my good movies! Yeah. Yeah, that’s right. Not like one of the bad ones. Like one of the good ones.”
By the way, I saw We Bought a Zoo recently. Spoiler alert: The phrase “we bought a zoo” is actually said, multiple times.
