Earlier this year it was revealed that Steven Spielberg was going to direct an original movie that will be based on Frank Bullitt, who was originally played by Steve McQueen in the 1968 iconic movie Bullitt. We’ve now discovered that Bradley Cooper is set to star in the movie, which is the next movie that Spielberg will direct.
The original movie was directed by Peter Yates, and it was based on the 1963 novel Mute Witness. The famous movie became McQueen’s most memorable role, and he portrayed a detective who investigates the death of a mob informant he was hired to protect. The movie is famous for including one of the best and most exciting car chases in movie history. McQueen even did his own stunts in the movie with a modified Ford Mustang.
Cooper has big shoes to fill with this project, I can’t wait to see what Spielberg does with this!
