The untitled project has been rewritten by Crowe. There are no details on the plot yet, but the previous version of the story revolves around the male lead, a disgraced military weapons consultant who, after being deployed to a dormant base in Hawaii to supervise the launch of a spy satellite, ‘starts to discover himself and the relationships he left behind against the backdrop of mythical island lore and Cold War-esque diplomacy.’
The filming is expected to begin in the spring of 2013.
Cooper has now wrapped production on The Hangover Part III, set for release on May 24th, 2013 and will next be seen in The Place Beyond the Pines. He’s also reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence in Serena.
