Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) is set to star in an adaptation of James Renner's novel The Man From Primrose Lane, which has been acquired by Warner Bros. The studio will develop it as a star vehicle for Cooper, who will also produce along with Kevin McCormick.
The script will be written by Chad Feehan (Beyond the Pale) and the story follows true-crime writer David Neff (Cooper) as he investigates the odd murder mystery about a recluse known as "the man with a
thousand mittens". Neff becomes obsessed with the case and discovers his own dangerous connection to a chain of serial murders. As he gets closer to uncovering the identity of the Man from Primrose Lane, he realises that he must look outside the believed parameters of time and space in order to solve the mystery.
Cooper can next be seen in The Place Beyond the Pines, with Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, which is due out in UK cinemas on April 12th. He has also finished filming The Hangover Part III, which is set to be released on May 24th, and Serena alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Rhys Ifans.
