De Niro Teams Up With Cooper For Drug Thriller
Well he’s stepping up to the big leagues now as he’s signed on to star with Robert ‘Raging Bull’ De Niro in Neil Burger’s adaptation of Alan Glynn’s novel, Dark Fields.
Cooper will play a young businessman who becomes addicted to a new drug, MDT-48, that gives him heightened intelligence and success. Things go haywire when Cooper’s cut off from his supply and he must ‘delve into the drug’s dark past to feed his habit.’
Variety describes De Niro part as ‘a brilliant financial mogul who begins pursuing Cooper’s character.’
It’s good to see that De Niro shows no sign of slowing down with age; he has a plethora of acting gigs lined up as well as several producing jobs in the works. He just appeared in Everybody’s Fine but has Machete, Little Fockers and cop drama Stone coming soon.
