Bradley Cooper is looking to not only star but also make his feature directorial debut on “Honeymoon with Harry” at New Line.
Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”) has come onboard the film to do a re-write which will tailor the project to suit the sensibilities of both Cooper and his “Silver Linings Playbook” co-star Robert De Niro who also is circling the project
The story revolves around a womanizing booze-hound who changes his ways when he falls in love. The girl’s father disapproves, and after the woman dies shortly before their wedding, the devastated groom sets off on their honeymoon to drink himself to death. He ends up running across the woman’s father who has ventured to spread his daughter’s ashes on her favorite beach.
Vince Vaughn and Jack Nicholson were linked to a previous version of the project which Paul Haggis was slated to direct.
