Bradley Cooper to direct himself in Leonard Bernstein biopic

Bradley Cooper has signed on to both direct and star in a new movie about the beloved composer Leonard Bernstein.

Bradley Cooper is seriously working on his filmmaking career, not only signing numerous acting jobs, but slowly becoming a production/directing force.

Cooper will appear in his directorial debut A Star Is Born (2018), alongside Lady Gaga. A Star Is Born (2018) is remake of 1937 movie of the same name, about a movie star who helps a young singer and actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.

Cooper just signed a deal for another directorial/acting/production effort - Bernstein, a biopic about the worldwide famous conductor Leonard Bernstein.

Oscar-winning screenplay writer Josh Singer is attached to script the story. You may know him as a leading writer of popular TV series The West Wing (2003-2006) and Fringe (2009-2011), and movies Spotlight (2015), The Post (2017).
