Cooper continues his string of high-profile projects.

As for the story, it’s meant to be a multi-part action flick, centered on Marshall Grade, an undercover NYPD cop turned mob informant. At the beginning of the story, Grade is living under the witness protection program in New Mexico, he is pulled into a dangerous investigation, which causes his past in New York to get wind of his whereabouts. Cooper is being groomed to play Grade.

The high-profile project continues Cooper’s run over the past couple of years. An Oscar nominee for his role as a well coiffed federal agent in American Hustle, Cooper also stars in the upcoming American Sniper, which is currently in development. Cooper is producing through 22nd & Indiana, with Clint Eastwood directing. American Sniper is yet to get a release date. American Blood (try not to get confused now) is even farther back in development. The book will be published in fall, 2015 by MacMillan.
