Great news.

Ladies and gents, we have some gorge news.

The wonderful Bradley Cooper is back in the hot seat, making a new movie.

His directorial debut was, of course, A Star Is Born, which garnered multiple Oscar nominations, including best actor.

Plus, it made more than $430 million in the global box office. Gorge.

And now he’s working on a new feature film – a biopic on composer Leonard Bernstein.

Leonard Bernstein was an American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer, and pianist.

He was among the first conductors born and educated in the U.S. to receive worldwide acclaim. According to music critic Donal Henahan, he was “one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history.”

Expected to start shooting early next year, the currently untitled film will receive a theatrical push from Netflix before hitting the streaming platform.

“Bradley’s directorial debut was nothing short of brilliant and he quickly cemented himself as a serious filmmaker,” Scott Stuber, head of Netflix film, said in a statement to Deadline.”

“His strong passion and clear vision for bringing to life the relationship between the iconic composer Leonard Bernstein and his wife, Felicia Montealegre, promises to do their lives justice as only this renowned filmmaking team can. We are honoured to be working with the Bernsteins to share their family’s story with audiences everywhere.”

Interestingly, Paramount signed on for the Bernstein project in 2018, months before A Star Is Born arrived in the cinema.
