Bradley Cooper May Direct Himself in ‘Kokowaah’ Remake

In 2009, Bradley Cooper went from utility handsome guy into movie star with his turn in Todd Phillips‘ ‘The Hangover,’ and in 2012 Cooper became an Oscar nominee for his work in ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ It looks like before 2015 Cooper plans to add another feather to his cap as he’s looking to direct his first feature film.

As Deadline is reporting, Cooper is looking to remake the German comedy ‘Kokowaah’ for American audiences. The story is about an author who comes to find out he had a daughter as a product of a one night stand, but when he comes to spend time with his daughter he finds out that she prefers her adopted father over her real one. The film was written, directed and starred Til Schweiger, who you might remember as Hugo Stiglitz from Quentin Tarantino‘s ‘Inglourious Basterds.’ And good news for Cooper, if it works, Schweiger has already made a sequel, so it’s a possible franchise.

This though is only one of a couple of projects that Cooper is developing at Warner Brothers, and if he doesn’t direct this one, he is very likely to helm another. Cooper is still keeping busy as an actor, and has ‘The Place Beyond the Pines‘ due out this March and ‘The Hangover Part 3‘ for this summer.

The slicked back curly hair and beard makes him look like he goes around sniffing bicycle seats.

So that's the backstory of that guy who gets his tongue bitten off by Hannibal Lector in "Silence of the Lambs"?

The most disgusting look ever

It's for The Hangover 3 but imo he should have just worn a wig + hasn't filming finished?

Ugh, he must like that sex pest look

He needs to be in front of the camera not behind it.
honeebs 28th-Feb-2013 03:24 pm (UTC)
I want to see the original.
No to Bradley.

The trailer for the original looks embarrassingly cheesy.
mellawe 28th-Feb-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
Everything staring Til Schweiger as more than background noise is an embarrassment
galactoze 28th-Feb-2013 03:38 pm (UTC)
oh not another one of those.

i hate movies that hinge on adoption as the plot and refer to the bio parent that never even knew of the kid's existence as their "real" parent
the_nerrieds 28th-Feb-2013 03:48 pm (UTC)
Will Jlaw play the daughter or the one night stand?

Why remake a movie when the original's already pretty bad?
kaiserschmarrn 28th-Feb-2013 04:17 pm (UTC)
I was just about to make exactly the same comment lol Why on Earth would someone pick a Til Schweiger to remake and Kokowääh to boot? Not that I actually watch his movies but I have it on good authority that even he has made better ones like Barfuss (at least the soundtrack to that was great).
hazel_belle 28th-Feb-2013 04:06 pm (UTC)
I liked Kokowääh but how does Bradley fare as a director? Has he done anything in that realm before?
xliquidskiesx 28th-Feb-2013 04:22 pm (UTC)
Lol Till Schweiger plays always the same type of guys in these movies.
I don't think a remake of this movie would work.
pon_pon_pink 28th-Feb-2013 04:34 pm (UTC)
i hate til schweiger so i haven't seen this one but it seems so random someone would want to remake it.
why not keinohrhasen? i thought that one was pretty successfull. i actually liked it even though 90% of german movies are shit.

the trailer for the original looks so bad and cliche omg. also, did anyone else notice the racist looking cartoon @ 2:36? not surprised tho since it's germany

annablume80 28th-Feb-2013 06:28 pm (UTC)
It's bad, isn't it? Even from the trailer it's obvious that Schweiger's daughter can't act (it's his real-life daughter playing the little girl in the film).

That said, that "racist" cartoon is clearly showing an animal of some sort. Prejudiced much?
angelic_white 28th-Feb-2013 06:17 pm (UTC)
I love the German film. But I fear an American remake will be even cheesier.
wiedemauchsei 28th-Feb-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
pls God no I hated that movie sm
juliesaracen 28th-Feb-2013 11:06 pm (UTC)
Can't wait for The Place Beyond the Pines.
