Bradley Cooper is reportedly being sought to star as WWE CEO Vince McMahon in a biopic titled “Pandemonium” according to PW Insider.
The site claims an offer was made several weeks ago to the actor’s representatives for the lead role, but there’s no word if Cooper is actually interested in the part.
The story covers McMahon’s ascension in the wrestling business, starting as a third generation wrestler.
WWE Studios and TriStar Pictures are behind the film which has John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (“Focus,” “Crazy Stupid Love”) attached to direct from a script by Craig A. Williams. Andrew Lazar, Michael Luisi and Adam Goldworm will produce.
Cooper has his directorial debut, the latest remake of “A Star Is Born,” on the way next year along with “Avengers: Infinity War” and the undersea survival tale “Deeper”.
