Wahlberg drops David O. Russell's The Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper and De Niro in talks to join

I've yet to see Neil Burger's LIMITLESS, but it seems Hollywood enjoyed the film's pairing of Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro enough to want to reunite them!

According to Deadline, Bradley Cooper is back in talks (he was linked to this project before) to take on the role previously attached to Mark Wahlberg (who dropped out due to a scheduling conflict) in David O. Russell's THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. Cooper would join other pretty person Jennifer Lawrence who has apparently beaten out a bunch of other big actresses for the film's lead role. Meanwhile, Robert De Niro is also in talks to join the film, though there's no word on what part he would play.

As previously reported, the film based on the novel by Matthew Quick, "revolves around a former high school teacher (Cooper) who was institutionalized for depression and is then released into the care of his mother. He tries to win back his ex-wife but becomes involved with an eccentric neighbor (Lawrence) with problems of her own."
Extra Tidbit: Russell's an excellent director and I think he gets entirely WAY too much flak for what he was going to do with UNCHARTED, a film I personally hope never gets made.

I think David O is an incredible director, he was just totally wrong for Uncharted.

I really like Wahlberg and I think Russell is a fantastic director but I would never want to see Mark play a teacher again after The Crappening, I mean The Happening.
