Paul Thomas Anderson’s next film, which is currently gearing up to enter production, may have found a leading man. The Hollywood Reporter has heard that Bradley Cooper is currently in talks to star in the director’s next film.
The film, which will center around a child actor in the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s, is still very much under wraps. It is not known what role Cooper is circling, but the film is reportedly planning to begin shooting in the fall.
Anderson’s previous film, Phantom Thread, was a huge critical success when it released in 2017. Other previous credits include Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and There Will Be Blood.
Bradley Cooper is has been nominated for eight Oscars since 2013, including Best Actor, Supporting Actor, Adapted Screenplay, and Picture (as a producer), but is yet to win. Last year, Cooper was a producer on Joker. The star of that film, Joaquin Phoenix, previously starred in two films by Anderson: The Master and Inherent Vice.
Anderson’s eight films have earned a total of nine acting Oscar nominations and one win (Daniel Day-Lewis for There Will Be Blood).
Hopefully more details about this film–including a name–will emerge soon.
