While “Aloha” might’ve been a stumble, that film’s failures are resting on the shoulders of Cameron Crowe, not Bradley Cooper, who is showing no signs of slowing down. This year you’ll see him on the small screen in “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp” and “Limitless” (yep, based on his sleeper hit movie), as well as on the big screen in two awards season contenders: the chef world set “Adam Jones” and the Jennifer Lawrence starrer “Joy.” And like any smart actor around town, Cooper is making sure he’s got lots of irons in the fire.
The latest project brewing for the actor is “Ghost Army.” Producing the project via his 22 & Green shingle alongside “American Sniper” exec Andrew Lazar, this venture seems to have shades of “Argo” telling the true story of a WWII unit dedicated to fooling the enemy with inflatable tanks, fake soldiers and much more. It’s based on the book “The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery” by Rick Beyer (who also directed a documentary about the subject) and Elizabeth Sayles and you can check out the synopsis below:
Henry Gayden (“Earth To Echo“) will be writing the script, and of course, the idea is that Cooper will star in the movie, but it will depend on how this all develops. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the “Ghost Army” doc below. [Deadline]
