Hathaway, Cooper See The “Silver Linings”

Anne Hathaway has signed onto the female lead while Bradley Cooper is in contention for the male lead in “The Silver Linings Playbook” for The Weinstein Company reports Showbiz 411.

The story concerns a man who, after a mental collapse, is released from a health facility determined to find the silver linings in his life.

In total denial that his wife has remarried and moved on, he moves home with his parents and befriends a depressed woman who offers to act as a liaison between him and his wife.

David O. Russell was attached to adapt Matthew Quick’s novel and direct the project earlier this year, though whether this or his planned adaptation of the video game “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune” will take precedence is unknown at present.
