Earlier this year, Bradley Cooper walked away from the proposed remake of The Crow to take the lead role in David O. Russell’s adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook, based on the novel by Matthew Quick. The first photos have begun to surface, and you can see Cooper on set with Robert De Niro and Jackie Weaver, thanks to Collider and Moviefone.
And here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of /Film:
Pat Peoples (Bradley Cooper) is a man always trying to look on the bright side of life – the title of the story takes it’s name from the expression that “every cloud has a silver lining.” Released from the hospital after losing his wife to another man, Pat believes this age-old adage is just the ticket to trying to win her back and get his life on track. Trying to remain resolutely undiscouraged, Pat moves back in with his parents and devotes himself entirely to becoming the man his wife always wanted him to be. But it’s an uphill battle. Until Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a beautiful young woman whose life also has not turned out the way she wanted. Together, the couple will try and navigate through their lives and stay true to who they are, always just one adventure away from a unique friendship, and possibly even love.
