Bradley Cooper is working with Sienna Miller on another major motion picture.
The Silver Linings Playbook star apparently loves working with the same batch of Hollywood professionals over and over again. Cooper has worked with director David O. Russell and Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence on a handful of high-profile projects. Apparently Bradley is doing the same thing with Sienna.
According to India Today, Bradley Cooper recently signed on to star in director John Wells’ upcoming drama Chef. Warning: Please don’t confuse this flick with Jon Favreau’s recent endeavor of the same name, a modestly-budgeted comedy featuring Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson. It’s confusing, we know.

The website explains that Cooper will star as a chef he moves to London to help kickstart his failing career. In short: It’s kind of like Favreau’s Chef, minus the food truck and British locale. Apparently that idea sounded good to someone else.
Variety reports that Bradley and Sienna recently wrapped production on legendary filmmaker Clint Eastwood’s upcoming flick American Sniper. The role required Cooper to put on quite a bit of muscle weight, which obviously caused more a few fans to swoon. If you missed photos of the actor’s bulky physique, then we’ll do you a solid.
Check out Bradley’s transformation below.

Chef and American Sniper aren’t the only projects Bradley Cooper has looming on the horizon at the moment. The Inquisitr previously reported that the actor was recently tapped to portray Joseph Merrick in a Broadway production of The Elephant Man. The role was previously tackled by acclaimed actor Billy Crudup.
The Star-Ledger reports that Cooper will hit the stage with Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola beginning this October at Booth Theater. Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis, who put together a similar production at the Williamstown Theater Festival, will handle directing duties on the play. Tickets are reportedly on sale right now.
Bradley Cooper fans who need something a little sooner can catch the actor as the voice of Rocket Raccoon in director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The big-budget superhero flick is presently scheduled to arrive in theaters on August 1.
