Bradley Cooper teaming with Jaume Collet-Serra for HERE THERE BE DRAGONS?
Say what you will, but the pair of director Jaume Collet-Serra and actor Bradley Cooper may be two of the more underrated members of their craft. Collet-Serra has a deft eye for thrills and chills (and camp, in many cases) and Cooper is quite a solid thespian. The duo now appear to be eying a new project to combine their skills.
Vulture is reporting that Collet-Serra is in talks with Warner Brothers to helm a new film entitled HERE THERE BE DRAGONS, with an offer out to Cooper to star in the film. Penned by Brian Helgeland, the film has seen filmmakers like Robert Zemeckis and Brad Bird take a look at directing it, so it’s definitely one of the bigger named studio properties around.
Following the story of a man hired to find a missing ship only to find that a monster has taken it, the film is eyeing an early 2013 shoot, waiting for Cooper to wrap on THE HANGOVER III. Personally, I really kind of like this idea. I think Collet-Serra is a really fun director, and Cooper could do wonders in this type of action project. Hopefully this doesn’t fall apart like it has in the past, and actually sees the light of day.
