Russell-directed pic about a man who suffers a break down, is institutionalized, and then heads back home to try and pick up the pieces.
It was supposed to be a Mark Wahlberg film, but he had to drop out due to other commitments. Now, Bradley Cooper will play lead, with Jennifer Lawrence as his younger love interest.
Tucker is also potentially joining “Neighborhood Watch,” a suburban comedy that has a mighty trio of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill.
After the debacle that was X-Men: The Last Stand, Fox is trying to reboot its Marvel mutant franchise by having Bryan Singer, who directed the well-liked first two installments of the initial trilogy, to produce a prequel.
And the studio hired Matthew Vaughn, who was actually on tap to direct Last Stand before deciding against it, to direct First Class, which is not only a prequel, but a period prequel, set in the funky 1960s.
And it’s got a crop of many up-and-comers and new stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Michael Fassbender.
