Bradley Cooper pacts with Warner Bros.

Two-year, first-look deal for actor-producer

Warner Bros. Pictures has signed a two-year, first-look deal with actor-producer Bradley Cooper.

Thesp has tapped Sheroum Kim has as a development exec for his 22 & Indiana Pictures production company, to be housed on the Warner lot.

Cooper starred in WB’s mega hits “The Hangover” and “The Hangover Part II.”

“We’re very happy to take our relationship with Bradley to the next level,” said Warner Bros. Pictures Group prexy Jeff Robinov said. “He’s a proven, multitalented star, and we expect this deal to see him emerge in a whole new light as a creative force.”

Warner Bros. has about three dozen first-look production and distribution deals, more than any other studio. Its roster include Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Brand, Zac Efron, Robert Downey Jr., Morgan Freeman, Steve Carell, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Cooper has raised his profile in recent years due to his roles in the successful “Hangover” films. He’s wrapped on an adaptation of Matthew Quick’s serio-comic “Silver Linings Playbook,” due out Nov. 21; CBS Films’ “The Words,” due out in the fall; and director Derek Cianfrance’s “The Place Beyond the Pines,” in which he plays a rookie cop; Open Road’s “Outrun,” due out Aug. 24. He has Susanne Bier’s “Serena” in pre-production.

Cooper’s rising stardom drove Relativity’s “Limitless” to $143 million worldwide gross last year.
