Bradley Cooper Could Remake Kokowaah
He's nabbed the hit German comedy

28 February 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Deadline

Bradley Cooper’s shaking off the fact that he ended up in an Oscar category against an unbeatable Daniel Day-Lewis by throwing himself into work he produces and, assuming he likes the script, might make as his directorial debut. The latest possibility to join that growing list is a remake of successful German comedy Kokowaah.

If Cooper does take on the English-language version, he’ll be following in the footsteps of Til Schweiger, who co-wrote, directed and starred in the original, and has just seen the sequel storm into the charts in Germany.

Kokowaah digs into the relationship between carefree bachelor Henry (Schweiger) and devoted dad Tristan (Samuel Finzi), who must re-evaluate their lives after learning the truth about who the father of Tristan’s eight-year-old daughter really is.

Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph are re-writing the screenplay, which was first tackled by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair. Cooper plans to produce and star, and is considering the project for his first directing gig. But it’ll have to fight for his attention alongside the likes of American Sniper and Dark Invasion.

Cooper will next be seen on screen in The Place Beyond The Pines (due April 12), which sees Ryan Gosling and his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance reunited. Then he’s back on Wolfpack duty for The Hangover III (May 24). He’s about to start work on David O. Russell’s latest, an untitled con man pic with Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence, and then he may star in Cameron Crowe's next film. What it is to be popular, eh?
