Bradley Cooper will reunite with Todd Phillips, director of the three “Hangover” movies, for a new action franchise based on the Mack Bolan books says Deadline.
Cooper would play anti-terrorist operative Bolan, with Phillips directing.
Shane Salerno (“Avatar 4”, “Armageddon”) will write the script, with Cooper and Phillips producing.
The project is set up at Warner Bros, who own the rights to the 900-volume novel franchise from late author Don Pendelton.
Everyone from Steve McQueen to Vin Diesel had been suggested to play Mack Bolan on the big screen in the past.
