Having already signed on to Warner Brothers’ World War I cop flick, Dark Invasion, Philly boy Bradley Cooper is poised to emerge as the next big “cop movie” cop. Now, with Warner Bros.’ having signed up for American Blood, that outcome is all but guaranteed.

Cooper will star in the upcoming film as a mob informant cum NYPD officer Marshall Grade. Grade, who enters a witness protection during the film to live in New Mexico, subsequently gets pulled back into the police trade to investigate the disappearance of a local woman. 

Based on the namesake novel by New Zealand author Ben Sanders, American Blood represents Sanders’ first crossover into the American market. The book, however, is slated for a Fall 2015 release, so Warner Bros. jumped on this one early. With Cooper attached, though, Sanders’ first American market effort stands a good chance at success. Andrew Sodroski will pen the script. 

Cooper, for his part, will next grace the big screen as Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, followed by Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper. The release date for American Blood, however, has not yet been announced.

Plenty of Cooper to go around until then, though.
