We reported a few weeks ago that Bruce Willis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bradley Cooper were circling the new film by M. Night Shyamalan and now it seems that one of those actors are off the project. /Film discovered an interview with Shyamalan at Philly.com where he said that Bradley Cooper likely won't appear in the new, untitled film, because of his involvement in another film.

"Hangover 2," lamented Shyamalan. "I don't think Bradley can do it because of that."

Cooper is from Abington, Willis from South Jersey and Paltrow has extended family ties to the area. Is the Chesco-based Shyamalan up to something?

"It does sound like regional theater. But that's all coincidence. Bradley is a Philly boy, we see each other a lot, and we've become friends, and obviously I've worked with Bruce a lot. But Gwyneth, she's just a great actress, that's why I'd be interested."

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on this new mystery project as soon as more information comes in.
