Steven Spielberg Lands Next Movie – ‘American Sniper’ – Bradley Cooper to Star
Busy filmmaker Steven Spielberg will be adapting another autobiography next. American Sniper will be the title, and it’s the story of the most lethal sniper in United States history. Chris Kyle, a Texas native, was in the news recently when he was tragically killed.
Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), who will be acting as a producer as well, will star in the film. Other casting news hasn’t been released quite yet. A release date also hasn’t been set.
Jason Hall (Spread) wrote the script, and it’s based on the New York Times best seller American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. Spielberg, coming off the success of Lincoln, has been searching for a project for awhile.
It’s good to hear he finally found it.
