Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is financing the drama. She will also produce alongside Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, and Ted Schipper. Production is scheduled to begin in February. Bradley Cooper also stars in David O. Russell's latest, The Silver Linings Playbook, arriving in theaters November 21.
