Bradley Cooper to Play a True-Crime Writer

Actor Bradley Cooper attends the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on January 27, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

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.
