'Movies are a huge part of my life'
Los Angeles: Actor Bradley Cooper says movies have been a huge influence in his life, sometimes healing him and sometimes providing him the energy to go on.
"I always felt like I wanted to direct movies. Movies are a huge part of my life as a kid healing me, energising me, inspiring me but you can't choose the moves that I have at the point of making the movie," Cooper said.
Cooper has expanded his creative horizons and will be making his directional debut with A Star Is Born with Warner Bros. Pictures, which is slated to release in India in October.
Bradley, is also co-producing the project through his 22 and Green production company along with Jon Peters, Bill Gerber and Basil Iwanyk.
The upcoming project will be based on the 1937 film by the same name, which was directed by the filmmaker William Wellmam. The story centres on a fading movie star who helps an aspiring actor while his own career spirals downward.
