Dominic Cooper sets sights on ‘Cities’

Thesp in final negoatiations to join cast of Roger Donaldson's thriller

Coming off a breakout year in which he starred in “The Devil’s Double,” the blockbuster “Captain America” and awards contender “My Week With Marilyn,” Dominic Cooper has entered final negotiations to join the cast of writer-director Roger Donaldson’s international thriller “Cities.”

Cooper will replace Clive Owen in the pic, and his casting calls into question his availability for Albert Hughes’ action-thriller “Motor City.” Owen was forced to drop out of the project due to scheduling issues.

Cooper joins Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and Anil Kapoor in the film, which takes place in the months before the Dow Jones stock-market high and intertwines the stories of characters around the globe, including a New York hedge fund manager, a Mumbai police officer and a couple who are house-hunting in London.

Matthew Metcalfe and Chris Curling are producing “Cities,” while Eyeworks New Zealand CEO Julie Christie will exec produce.

UTA’s Independent Film Group helped package the film and structure the financing, and the agency will rep domestic rights with CAA. Solution Entertainment Group is handling international rights to the pic, which starts filming this spring in London, Mumbai and Gotham.

Cooper, who’s currently filming “Summer in February” with Emily Browning, will next be seen in Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” which 20th Century Fox releases on June 22.

Cooper is repped by CAA and U.K.-based tenpercentery Markham, Froggatt and Irwin.
