Bradley Cooper ‘Fields’ film offer

Burger to direct suspense thriller for Relativity

“The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper has signed on to star in Relativity Media suspense thriller “Dark Fields.”

Neil Burger (“The Illusionist”) is onboard to direct.

Project is described as a what-if story about a designer drug that can make you rich and powerful. Eddie (Cooper) is a down-and-out New York writer until he possesses a pill that gives him the ability to access the full capacity of his brain. He soon realizes that his newfound intelligence and success come at a hefty price as mysterious forces begin to pursue him.

Film, which will begin lensing in late spring 2010, is based on a novel by Alan Glynn. Leslie Dixon (“Hairspray”) adapted the screenplay.

Dixon and Scott Kroopf (“Breach”) are producing alongside Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh. Relativity’s Tucker Tooley is exec producing.

Universal will distribute through Relativity’s Rogue Pictures.

Cooper can be seen onscreen in “New York, I Love You.”  His upcoming credits include the Garry Marshall-helmed “Valentine’s Day” and 20th Century Fox’s “The A-Team.”
