Steven Spielberg and Bradley Cooper are joining forces to make military drama American Sniper.
The Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook actor is already on board to star as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in the big-screen adaptation of Chris' autobiography, reported Deadline.
Based on American Sniper: The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In US Military History, the memoir tells the story of the expert marksman who was killed by a fellow discharged war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Bradley bought the rights to the biography about a year ago, and the book has been adapted by Jason Hall.
Bradley, who has left his role in Western Jane Got A Gun, is also in talks to star in Chef, directed by John Wells.
He would play a French cook, who has to get his career back on track after getting over his addictions.
