Bradley Cooper To Work With Scorsese, Spielberg And Todd Phillips For New Netflix Film

You're unlikely to ever see so many big names producing the same film

Bradley Cooper didn't do too shabbily with his directorial debut A Star Is Born.

The 2018 remake - which he produced, directed and starred in - earned eight Oscar nominations, including two for him for Best Picture and Best Actor.

Now the 45-year-old will look to build upon this success with Netflix - and with the help of some very big name producers.

Steven Spielberg is one of many top producers involved with the project.

The streaming service has acquired the rights to a film about the late American composer Leonard Bernstein, focusing on his relationship with wife Felicia Montealegre.

Cooper will star, direct and produce - and he also co-wrote the script, the talented b*****d.

But if there was any doubt about Cooper's ability to juggle these plates, you can rest assured he will have more than enough support from a stellar line up of producers.

Martin Scorsese - who recently received an Oscar nomination for Best Director for The Irishman - will be lending a hand with the film, as will Steven Spielberg, who has previously raised concerns about the impact streaming services may be having on cinemas.

Todd Phillips, who has also received three Oscar nominations for Joker, will be collaborating with Cooper once again on the film.

As if the help of all the above wasn't enough, Emma Tillinger Koskoff - who was a producer on Joker and The Irishman - will also be lending a hand with the project.

This has just got to be good, hasn't it?

Phillips and Cooper have worked together on numerous films in the past.

Netflix Head of Film, Scott Stuber, seems confident they're on to a winner.

Speaking to Deadline, he said: "Bradley's directorial debut was nothing short of brilliant and he quickly cemented himself as a serious filmmaker.

"His strong passion and clear vision for bringing to life the relationship between the iconic composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife Felicia Montealegre promises to do their lives justice as only this renowned filmmaking team can.

"We are honoured to be working with the Bernsteins to share their family's story with audiences everywhere."

The Bernstein film is expected to begin production early next year and Netflix will give it a significant theatrical release before the film premieres on its streaming site, according to Deadline.

So we've got a fair while to wait yet, but with so many masterly movie minds assigned to the project, it will surely be worth the wait.
