Bradley Cooper is reteaming with Clint Eastwood in The Mule. Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive—easy enough but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel, and also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. Imperative produces. Our sister publication Variety was first up with the news. Cooper, who starred in American Sniper, made his directing debut and stars opposite Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born, and he just became aligned to direct and star as Leonard Bernstein for Paramount Pictures and Amblin.
