Bradley Cooper drops out of ‘War’

Bradley Cooper has left the 20th Century Fox spy comedy “This Means War.”

According to Variety, Cooper’s leaving the project was due to a scheduling conflict.

Reese Witherspoon remains attached to the project, with McG (“Terminator Salvation”) set to direct.

Fox had hoped to start shooting by late spring, but that has now been pushed back to July.

Will Smith’s Overbrook production company is producing the film.

Timothy Dowling wrote the latest version of the script that has seen several rewrites. The story centers on two spies who are lifelong friends until they fall in love with the same woman. Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
