Bradley Cooper moving forward with 'American Sniper' biopic

After the tragic shooting death of ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle this past week, Bradley Cooper is moving forward with American Sniper, a movie based on the autobiography of Kyle. Cooper bought the rights to American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History last spring, he told NPR’s Fresh Air yesterday.

In the wide-ranging interview (which you can listen to in full), Cooper discussed how he wanted to fast-track the project, which has obviously generated more public interest with recent events. “I couldn’t believe it. Jason Hall, who’s writing the script, called me an hour after it happened…,” Cooper explained about how he heard about the death. “The first draft was coming in this week, and Thursday I was at Walter Reed hospital meeting with veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder, among many other ailments; and then all of a sudden I hear this thing and I just can’t believe it. This man has two children, and he is an advocate for putting guns back in veterans’ hands, as a way of therapy.” READ FULL STORY

'The Silver Linings Playbook' author talks movie adaptation: 'I think Jennifer Lawrence did an amazing job'

The Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick has had quite a turnaround from just a few short years ago, when he was writing The Silver Linings Playbook in his in-laws basement. He was unemployed, had sold his house, quit a tenured teaching position and was unsure what the next step of his life would be. “It was a dark time in my life, classic struggling artist on my last dollar,” Quick explained on the phone with EW. Now, the author  — who estimates he’s seen the film version of his first book seven times – is taking on Hollywood. He’s been to various SLP screenings, joined the cast at a taping of Katie, and is likely attending the Oscars himself Feb. 24. And he’s only just getting started in movies. His upcoming book, The Good Luck of Right Now, was just optioned by DreamWorks, and he’ll be an executive producer on the project.

Read on for an edited chat with Quick and get his thoughts on Bradley Cooper, mental illness and the changes between the book and film. READ FULL STORY

Oscars luncheon on-the-scene: Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Hugh Jackman, and more

Before the 160 expected guests of honor could bite into their burrata arugula canapés and miso-marinated, pistachio-crusted sea bass fillets at the annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in the Beverly Hilton ballroom on Monday, a handful of nominated actors and filmmakers dropped by the press room to talk about their celebrated projects, awards season experiences, people they’d like to work with, and big night fashion plans. There were moments of gratitude, plenty of jokes and even, in the case of Amy Adams, accidental musical accompaniment and spontaneous dancing.

Twas a dark and stormy night: 'The Place Beyond the Pines' debuts new poster

It’s hard for a movie poster to be anything but pretty when it features the faces of Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling, and Bradley Cooper, but somehow, the new poster for The Place Beyond the Pines achieves an impressive-yet-appropriate level of gloominess (while still being pretty).

The Place Beyond the Pines, the next film from Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance, stars Ryan Gosling as a stunt rider who turns to a life of crime (specifically bank robbing) to provide for his baby mama, played by Eva Mendes. Meanwhile, Cooper and his blue eyes are lurking around every corner with his rookie-cop badge and a son of his own.

After debuting at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival, The Place Beyond the Pines is giving the rest of us a glimpse into its world with its latest poster, which features a very worried Mendes, a confused/angry Cooper and a determined Gosling on his way to the nearest bank. It’s a tale of fathers, sons and, from the looks of the poster, at least one dark and stormy night.

Bradley Cooper dismisses Lance Armstrong role rumors

Slow down, everyone. Bradley Cooper may not be getting on a bike just yet.

Last week, he told BBC News that he was interested in playing disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong if a movie version of his life comes to fruition. Now, the Silver Linings Playbook star has explained to Access Hollywood that he was amused by the subsequent chatter, but there’s no truth to it. “Oh my god, that’s so nuts!” he said. “I was in Manchester, doing the BBC morning show… I had no idea what [the interviewer] was talking about. I didn’t even know that J.J. [Abrams] has the rights, I had no idea. I don’t know anything about it.”

'The Place Beyond the Pines' trailer: Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper together at last

Derek Cianfrance’s directorial follow up to 2010’s Blue Valentine features Ryan Gosling (again), but this time he’s not playing the ne’er do well young husband. Rather, he’s got a harder edge as a motorcycle trickster who must decide how to handle unexpected fatherhood… all while getting caught up in a complex crime drama. In the trailer below, we get a glimpse at Gosling’s character’s life, his love interest played by Eva Mendes, and the cops entangled in his case, played by Bradley Cooper and Ray Liotta.

Since former EW movies writer Dave Karger noted on the film’s Toronto Film Festival premiere that “This is the kind of movie that one should know nothing about before seeing,” we’ll leave you with the trailer and say no more.
