Bradley Cooper Reveals He's Writing A Script Based On Dan Simmons' 'Hyperion' NovelsBradley Cooper is about to have a very, very good Memorial Day weekend. "The Hangover Part II" is likely to make well over $100 million dollars at the box office over the holiday and it will mark the second big hit this year for the actor, whose thriller "Limitless" has quietly climbed to over $140 million worldwide. The actor hit "The Charlie Rose" show a couple of days ago and talked not only about the comedy sequel, but about a couple of projects he's got on his plate.

Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection. (It's also the biggest selling comedy DVD of all time. Jesus.) The prospect of another movie, again starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis, coming this quickly, has been tantalizing for cinemagoers and something that is getting people really, really jazzed, which makes it somewhat harder to report that "The Hangover Part II" is one of the laziest, unself-aware and most unpleasant Hollywood products we've seen all year. And we just saw the fourth "Pirates Of The Caribbean" movie a couple of weeks ago.

Word had gone quiet for a few months on "The Words," a Black List script that picked up Bradley Cooper as its star, with Jeremy Irons in negotiations, back in February. With Cooper proving himself a bona-fide movie star with the surprise success of "Limitless," and attaching himself to everything from "The Crow" and "Paradise Lost" to, more excitingly, Derek Cianfrance's "Blue Valentine" follow-up "Place Beyond The Pines," we'd wondered if the project was still on the cards for the actor.

We have to admit, we were a little worried. After talk surfaced during the awards season of Ryan Gosling and his "Blue Valentine" director Derek Cianfrance reteaming on a new project called "The Place Beyond The Pines" that was set to shoot this summer, word went a bit quiet. But not only is the project alive and kicking the seemingly ubiquitous Bradley Cooper has been offered a role.

Unaware that the concept seems to be an Onion headline come to life, Bradley Cooper is eyeing the role of Lucifer in a big budget 3D adaptation of "Paradise Lost" according to Variety. Take a second, and let that sink in. A big budget, 3D adaptation of "Paradise Lost." With Bradley Cooper. Got it? Ok, great. Great pains are being made to stress that negotiations are not yet underway, but that apparently Cooper is chomping at the bit for the chance to star in what deserves to be the biggest cinematic punchline of the next couple of years.

You sure know how to fuck with us Hollywood. Just a few days after “28 Weeks Later” helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo came aboard to direct the long in the works reboot or whatever of "The Crow" -- that looks like it will be dropping the Nick Cave script (what the hell) -- an actor is now ready to get his dark eyeliner going as Eric Draven. And it's kind of baffling.

Jonathan Demme's 'Honeymoon For Harry' Falls Apart After Robert De Niro Gets Cold Feet

The lament of the last fifteen years or so of Robert De Niro's career is a common one; the actor for the most part having traded in the challenging performances he made his name on in the 1970s and 1980s for a series of lukewarm comedies and pot-boiler thrillers. His last truly great performance was in "Jackie Brown" in 1997 and, while he does occasionally do good work -- last year's "Stone" was his best for ages -- audiences don't seem to care when he does. But the actor doesn't exactly help his own cause.

Originally (and enigmatically) titled “Dark Fields,” Neil Burger’s latest film now bears the bland moniker “Limitless,” making it sound like a film scraped together from D.C. Comics’ dregs. But rather than being another entry in the seemingly neverending superhero genre, “Limitless” is a sci-fi-inflected thriller that never quite lives up to its premise or its lead actor.

Bradley Cooper Pitches Himself To Play Tom Buchanan In Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

With Baz Luhrmann being irritatingly cutesy and coy regarding his presumably forthcoming adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" -- all he'll really admit these days is that it's something he's researching -- what we know for certain isn't much, except that Carey Mulligan has been selected to play Daisy in the film. And while Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire have workshopped the project with Luhrmann in the roles of Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway, and are expected to take on those parts, there is another male lead in the film and Bradley Cooper wants it.
