Bradley Cooper is to produce and star in the English-language remake of the 2011 German comedy Kokowaah.
The Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook actor is also reportedly considering whether or not to direct the movie himself, which would mark his first time in the director's chair, reported Deadline.
The original film, which was so successful in Germany that it spawned a sequel, was directed by and starred Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds) as a writer who suddenly discovers that he has an eight-year-old daughter, with the story following his work, his relationship with his offspring and her foster dad, and his attempts to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend and writing partner.
Bradley and Sheroum Kim are developing the remake at Warner Bros, with Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph rewriting the screenplay from an earlier draft.
The actor will next be seen in Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines, before reuniting with his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence in Serena.
He will also reprise his role in The Hangover Part III and is attached to two as-yet-untitled films by Cameron Crowe and David O Russell.
