Much like many fans, we were sorta disappointed when Bradley Cooper was passed over for the lead in Warner Bros’ Green Lantern flick. Sure, we may still get Cooper in a DC comics adaptation as he’s being courted to play the lead in David Goyer’s Flash. But in the meantime, we get a brand new film with Cooper showing off some more-than-normal abilities in Limitless.
Here’s the official breakdown:
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unpublished writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret smart drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film.
So not only does this have Bradley Cooper as the super genius protagonist, but De Niro, Pushing Daisies’ Anna Friel, and even A.J. from Empire Records! Be sure to check out the full trailer after the jump, and catch Limitless in theaters on March 18th.
