Where there’s a Will, there’s a Midnight Train

“Alias” star joins Clive Barker project


Popular TV series Scenery-Chewer Bradley Cooper (“Alias”, “Kitchen Confidential”) will shake up his filmography next year by playing the lead in a horror pic. In “Midnight Train”, from serial horror writer Clive Barker, Cooper will play a photographer on the trail of a serial killer who operates in the subway system.

The extent of Cooper’s work in the genre thus far was his, um, work in “Wet Hot American Summer”. (Jokes, Jokes).

According to Variety, the movie – called “Midnight Meat Train” as a book – is being directed by Ryuhei Kitamura, replacing Patrick Tatopoulos, who fell off the project.

Cooper also has a role in the upcoming thriller “Case 39”, opposite Renee Zellweger.
