Bradley Cooper in talks to join Clint Eastwood in The Mule crime drama

Word has reached the masses that Bradley Cooper is in talks to star opposite Clint Eastwood in THE MULE, a Warner Bros. crime drama. Directing the project will be Eastwood himself, whose acting role in the film will be his first since 2012's TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE. As you're likely aware, Cooper and Eastwood teamed for the biographical action drama AMERICAN SNIPER back in 2014. The gritty feature that told the true-life story of Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle earned as astounding $547 million during its box office run.

In THE MULE, Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80's who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive—easy enough but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel, and also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates.

Eastwood will play Stone in the film, while Cooper is poised to step into the role of the lead DEA agent who'll stop at nothing to bring the drug runner to justice.

GRAN TORINO writer Nick Schenk will pen the script with Dave Holstein (WEEDS). Meanwhile, Imperative Entertainment will produce in a partnership with Eastwood.
