Warner Bros. Pictures is in negotiations to pick up the film rights to Gregg Hurwitz’s upcoming book “Orphan X,” with the project to be shaped as a potential Bradley Cooper producing and starring vehicle.
The story centers on a man named Evan Smoak, a ‘nowhere man’ who helps others, sometimes through violent means. His latest job draws him into a world of human slavery, engineered by a detective of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Hurwitz will pen the adaptation and Todd Phillips will produce. Cooper’s next project is “Arms and the Dudes” starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller.
