Bradley Cooper Shooting Eagles Movie Next Month

Filming in Philadelphia

Bradley Cooper will be in Philly next month to film The Silver Linings Playbook—a film that incorporates the protagonists Eagles fandom as a plot device. The Germantown grad will be in town with Jennifer Lawrence to shoot and there’s rumors that De Niro and Chris Tucker might join the cast as well. It may not have been good enough for Brad Pitt, but Philly seems to work just fine for Cooper and company. Although, the Scoop suspects that Cooper might have pulled some strings just to get to shoot in Philly during the Phillies 2011 playoff run. [A.V. Club]
