As Bradley Cooper is preparing to return as Phil in The Hangover Part III, the actor is also lining up a few projects for after that sequel has wrapped. He is in talks to star in Bad Blood and Trouble for Media Rights Capital and director J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed). He is also considering an offer to join the cast of Clint Eastwood's A Star Is Born remake.

Bad Blood and Trouble is set in the 1950s and centers on a Miami private detective (Bradley Cooper) who is in love with a married woman. Complications arise when her husband is targeted by a criminal group. Production will begin in the second half of 2013 in London, with Adrian Sturges and Michael De Luca producing.

It isn't known what role he is considering in A Star Is Born, which already has Beyoncé Knowles attached to star. After The Hangover Part III, the actor will start production on American Bullshit for director David O. Russell. There may be enough of a window between that project and Bad Blood and Trouble to squeeze in A Star Is Born.
