Child star cast in American Sniper

Bradley Cooper's son in American Sniper will be played by The Amazing Spider-Man's Max Charles.

The 10-year-old actor, who played the young Peter Parker in the superhero films, has been cast in Clint Eastwood's war drama, reported The Wrap.

He will play the son of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Bradley) and his wife Taya, who is being played by Sienna Miller.

Max's previous big screen outings also include The Three Stooges and animated film Mr Peabody And Sherman, in which he voiced the character Sherman.

He has also appeared in TV shows such as The Neighbours, True Blood and Community.

The film is being adapted from Kyle's book, American Sniper: The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In US Military History. It tells the story of the expert marksman, who was killed by a discharged war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

American Sniper is expected to be released in 2015.
