Cooper Could Star As “The Man From Primrose Lane”

Actor Bradley Cooper is in conversations to take the lead in The Man From Primrose Lane.

Based on the genre-blending novel by James Renner, Warner Brothers has reportedly purchased the big-screen rights as a starring vehicle for Cooper.

The novel is about true-crime writer David Neff, who, in investigating the strange murder mystery of a recluse known as “the man with a thousand mittens,” quickly becomes obsessively embroiled in a chain of serial murders. The closer Neff comes to uncovering the true identity of the Man from Primrose Lane, the more he discovers his own dangerous connection to the series of crimes. He realizes in order to end the cycle of death and capture the killer he must look outside the parameters of what he believed to be true about time and space.

If you haven’t read the book yet, it’s a must read.

And if you have, what do you think of Cooper as the lead?

    I loved the book… not too sure about Bradley Cooper, though. I think as I was reading I was picturing David as more of a Paul Giamati type. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the back and forth between present day and flashback (and future) in the film.
