Bradley Cooper Reportedly In Talks To Join Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1970s High School Drama

Paul Thomas Anderson is finally moving forward with his follow up to Oscar-winning drama Phantom Thread and The Hollywood Reporter has word that Bradley Cooper is in talks to take a unknown role in the untitled drama that has landed at MGM Studios. 

Cooper is expected to resume filming on Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley this fall in Toronto, so I wouldn’t hold my breath about their tidbit about it starting to begin shooting this fall in Los Angeles. That is unless Cooper’s role is extremely small.

The 1970s project will be set in the San Fernando Valley, the setting of Paul’s previous films Boogie Nights and Magnolia. It will focus on a child actor going to high school in the Valley. 

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more casting additions in the following weeks.
