Another day, another dollar.

That statement has never been more true, than when it is in relation to one Bradley Cooper.

Just a day after taking over the role of Lucifer in Alex Proyas’ upcoming PARADISE LOST, Variety is reporting that the actor has been offered a role in the upcoming film, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. The film, to star Ryan Gosling and be directed by Derek Cianfrance, has been described as a Jack London type story that will follow a motorcycle rider who robs banks to support his son.

Penned by Cianfrance and Ben Coccio, the film will be hitting the Croisette this year at the Cannes Film Festival, and shouldn’t be too short on offers when it does make its way to France come later this May. Gosling will be quite busy over the next few months however, with roles in GANGSTER SQUAD, ONLY GOD FORGIVES, and then LOGAN’S RUN all attached to the beloved actor.

As far as Cooper goes, this is a project that I think fans of the actor have been waiting for him to join for quite some time. This is a polar opposite of something like THE CROW or PARADISE LOST, and sounds like a really compelling little project.
