Bradley Cooper is set to produce a TV drama based on his hit 2011 movie, 'Limitless'
Bradley Cooper will produce a TV show based on his hit movie 'Limitless'.
The Oscar-nominated actor has teamed up with Relativity Media's TV production arm, Relativity Television, and Georgeville Television as an executive producer on a new one hour drama based on his 2011 action thriller.
Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh told Deadline: "'Limitless' is the perfect example of Relativity's multiplatform approach to creating quality content."
Georgeville CEO Marc Rosen added: "The film has an organic natural extension into a compelling and sophisticated one-hour drama that is both a thrill-ride and a social commentary."
'Limitless' centred on a struggling writer who discovers a powerful new drug which unlocks all of his brainpower, turning him into a successful finance mogul. However, the protagonist's change in fortune raises questions and soon he finds himself targeted by seedy criminals.
The film co-starred actress Abbie Cornish and Oscar-winning legend Robert De Niro.
The thriller was a huge success at the box office, grossing $160 million worldwide.
It is unlikely Cooper will star in the TV adaptation as he has a busy schedule coming up. The actor will next be seen in 'American Hustle', which reunites him with 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O'Russell and co-star Jennifer Lawrence. He will then voice Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's superhero blockbuster 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.
