Bradley Cooper To Play Frank Bullitt In Steven Spielberg's New Movie Based on the Classic Character

Bradley Cooper Steven Spielberg Bullitt

Bradley Cooper has signed on to lead Steven Spielberg's new take on the iconic San Francisco cop, originally played by Steve McQueen in the 1968 thriller "Bullitt". Set up at Warner Bros, the film will not be a remake of the original, but a new idea centered on the character.

The 1968 classic is considered one of McQueen's most iconic roles and delivered one of the most famous car chases in cinema history. The new film's screenplay is penned by Josh Singer ("Spotlight"). Cooper will also produce alongside Spielberg and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

It has been reported that Cooper and Spielberg were in talks since the pandemic and used all that time to figure out how to handle the character. The two had previously been trying for years to team up for a project. Spielberg was at one point attached to direct "American Sniper", but ultimately had to step down and the film ended up being directed by Clint Eastwood. The filmmaker was also close to directing Cooper's "Maestro", but after seeing "A Star is Born" he decided the actor should also direct the project.

Cooper is currently in post-production on "Maestro", which he also co-wrote, directed, produced and stars in. The film will be released in 2023 on Netflix.
