Bradley Cooper Too Busy With The Hangover 2 To Work With Shyamalan
It needs to be said: M. Night Shyamalan is in deep shit. Every single movie he has made since breaking out with The Sixth Sense in 1999 has been viewed as worse than the last by critics. But with The Last Airbender doing as poorly as it is, who could blame any actor for wanting nothing to do with the director?
In an article tragically titled "M. Night Shyamalan's future is riding on the success of The Last Airbender," Philly.com is reporting that Bradley Cooper has officially dropped out of Shyamalan's next project, the director citing scheduling conflicts with The Hangover 2. As reported last week, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis have also been linked to the project, which is being described as a thriller reminiscent of Shyamalan's earlier work.
The article doesn't explicitly state when Cooper had to drop the project from his schedule, so it's undetermined if The Last Airbender had any effect on the decision. Strangely, however, the sequel to last year's hit comedy has yet to announce a shooting schedule as director Todd Phillips is currently busy planning the secretive Project X. It's possible that Shyamalan merely assumed that it was The Hangover 2 that Cooper was doing, but the actor has become a hot commodity in Hollywood so it could be any number of projects that interfere with Shyamalan's. At the same time, would you want to work for a director who's latest film is being called the worst of the year?
