Bradley Cooper Has Found His Next Directorial Project

Later this year, Bradley Cooper will debut his sophomore feature, Maestro. That likely will be in the thick of the Oscar conversation. What comes next for Cooper behind the camera? Well, it seems like he’s found his next project.

According to Deadline, Cooper is going to direct, as well as co-star, in Is This Thing On? at Searchlight Pictures. He’ll co-star with Will Arnett, who co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Chappell. Cooper is apparently planning to do a draft of the script with them once the WGA strike ends, too. So, while no plot points are available yet, this could be an interesting third movie as a filmmaker for the nine time Academy Award nominee.
