Deadline reports that Bradley Cooper is attached to star in the adaptation of James Renner's The Man From Primrose Lane. Cooper will play a true-crime writer who investigates the murder of a nearby recluse, “the man with a thousand mittens.” However, the deeper he gets, the more he starts to learn about his own relationship to the murder. Throw in some booze and ambiguous pills, and you got a Hangover movie, but instead of stealing a monkey, the Wolfpack killed a recluse.
