Bradley Cooper (“The Midnight Meat Train”) is quite the in-demand actor now that he has been Oscar nominated for “Silver Linings Playbook”, and it looks like he might actually take a shot at work behind the camera.
Deadline learned yesterday that Cooper is developing an American remake of the German film “Kokowaah.”
The original was written and directed by, and starred, Til Schweiger (“Inglorious Basterds”), and centered on an author (Schweiger) who is adapting a best-selling novel with his ex-girlfriend and is suddenly presented with the existence of an eight-year-old daughter from a one night stand. Complicating matters is the daughter’s preference for her foster father over the biological one.
The original film was Germany’s highest-grossing film of 2011.
I can really see Cooper doing well in that role, but my only concern is with him directing as well.
I don’t know why I always thought it was meant to be difficult to be a director, but it seems lately a lot of actors are jumping behind the camera instead of staying in front.
Only time will tell if this is a massive mistake or not.
