Whaaat?!? A movie starring Bradley Cooper that doesn’t also include Jennifer Lawrence? It happened with American Sniper, and now it’s happening again with Burnt. However, Cooper does still seem to struggle with letting go, because his American Sniper co-star, Sienna Miller, also stars in his new film.
When Cooper gets comfortable with something, he likes to stick with it for as long as he can. And right now, Cooper is comfortable starring in award-winning movies. The three-time Oscar nominee plays Adam Jones, a Chef who destroyed his career in the kitchen with drugs and Gordon Ramsay-like behavior.
“I don’t want my restaurant to be a place where you come and eat. I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing.” Cooper says in the trailer, in that super cool “I’m not whispering or talking. I’m whisping.” voice.
The film, which is directed by John Wells (August: Osage County), also stars Matthew Rhys, Emma Thompson and Omar Sy. It’s scheduled to hit theaters October 23, 2015, and it’s safe to assume the film will be nominated for some awards. Bradley Cooper is hot right now. Hotter than the kitchen his character is running.
