Another action role for Bradley Cooper on the horizon it seems.
He will star in Mack Bolan (aka The Executioner), originally a novel written by Don Pendleton. Check out this synopsis:
Mack Bolan is a Vietnam War veteran serving as a sniper. It is in these jungles where the young Bolan honed his military capabilities and his deadly accuracy. His 97 confirmed kills gave birth to the nickname he would carry for the rest of his life: The Executioner. And yet amidst the chaos of war, Bolan also earned the moniker Sergeant Mercy, for his compassion and willingness to help innocent Vietnamese citizens put in harm’s way or wounded by the conflict around them…
Using the tactics he learned during his military combat, Bolan refused to return to Vietnam and instead took his war to the Mafia. City by city, he strikes ruthlessly to bring down the mafia and to clean the country of this horrific criminal organization.
Astute manly movie fans might recognise that this movie passed through the eyes of several famous actors including Clint Eastwood, Sylvester Stallone and Vin Diesel. Warner Bros. will produce and Shane Salerno will write.
