The Hangover

Bradley Cooper: The mind reels. Bradley Cooper is under consideration by director Clint Eastwood to play a characted inspired by Kurt Cobain (?!) opposite Beyonce in the upcoming remake of A Star Is Born. While that’s still very much up in the air, Cooper is considering a starring role in Bad Blood and Trouble, a crime thriller set in the 1950s in which he would play a Florida detective who falls in love with a married woman.

The Hangover Part III: Bradley Cooper, of course, shot to stardom in Todd Phillips’ The Hangover and will return for the second sequel with Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis. The first two installments featured a villain of sorts, and John Goodman is in talks to fill that role for The Hangover Part III. Plot details have not yet been revealed, but it seems the part will be "juicy," if  relatively small. [Showblitz]

The Hitman’s Bodyguard: Pierre Morel parlayed his skills as a cinematographer for producer Luc Besson into directing gigs on the wild action flicks District B13, Taken and From Paris with Love. Now he’s in negotiations for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, the tale of a “protection agent” charged with safeguarding a hitman turned government witness against an Eastern European war criminal.

Bullet to the Head Trailer: Originally scheduled for release in April, Bullet to the Head, directed by Walter Hill (48 HRS.), was pulled at the last minute and delayed until February 1. A new trailer reveals '80s-style action and plenty of quips from Sylvester Stallone as a retired hitman, Sai Kung as a New York City cop, and Sarah Shahi as the hitman's daughter. [IGN]
