Having earned a well-deserved Best Actor nod for Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper’s upcoming slate has been interesting to watch, to say the least. The Hangover Part III hits theatres at the end of the month, and things continue to look good for him. And with filming underway on David O. Russel’s Playbook follow-up, American Hustle, Steven Spielberg has now committed to making American Sniper, the Bradley Cooper-led project, his next movie.
Unfortunately, Cooper’s schedule has forced him to exit one project we were really looking forward to seeing him in, with THR reporting that he has now officially exited Jane Got a Gun, which you might recall has been somewhat troubled with problems in recent months.

Steven Spielberg was planning to make Robopocalypse his next directorial effort, but he decided the script needed more work so he put it on the back burner. That left him with out a new project, until today.
The film will be based on the book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.
Here’s rundown courtesy of Barnes & Noble:
From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. Iraqi insurgents feared him so much they called him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a $20,000 bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, fighting alongside them in the streets, as well »

The film is an adaptation of American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in Us Military History, by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice, which follows Kyle's development from a Texas rodeo cowboy to a Navy Seal chief with the greatest number of sniper kills in Us military history.
Cooper's production company optioned the rights to the book in 2012, and the project was subsequently fast-tracked after Kyle was shot and killed on February 2 at a shooting range in Erath County, Texas.
Director Steven Spielberg is going from directing a biopic about the assassinated 16th President of the United States to a movie about a trained marksman. Deadline has word that DreamWorks has set Spielberg to direct American Sniper, a project that has had Bradley Cooper attached since last May and had Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell circling last fall. Cooper is producing the project through his newly established 22nd & Indiana banner and the film is actually based on Navy Seal Chris Kyle's autobiography American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. Jason Hall, who wrote the forthcoming Paranoia with Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Liam Hemsworth, is behind the script which tells the story of how Kyle racked up the most confirmed kills for an American during his time in the armed forces, and is punctuated with passages from Kyle's wife »

It seems Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are back on after "The Rum Diaries" co-stars were spotted holding hands at a surprise Rolling Stones concert in Los Angeles. Gwen Stefani, Bruce Willis and Owen Wilson were among the other big names who found their way to the secret show.
Depp has gone out of his way to hang on the affections of his two decades-plus younger girlfriend, including having a "Rum Diary" replica bar built at his Bahamas home, and buying his princess a pony.
Heard, who dates both men and women but says she doesn't want to be labeled as a bisexual, reportedly dumped Depp for a female, French model Marie de Villepin.
