Actor, writer and director Bradley Cooper has wrapped Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 and is now making his way back down to earth to direct the Leonard Bernstein film, Maestro.
Sarah Silverman (The Atlantic Theater Company’s The Bedwetter, The Sarah Silverman Podcast) has joined the cast of Maestro, alongside the previously announced Cooper, Carey Mulligan, Matt Bomer and Maya Hawke.
Maestro tells the complex love story of Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, a story that spans over 30 years – from the time they met in 1946 at a party and continuing through two engagements, a 25 year marriage, and three children: Jamie Bernstein, Alexander Bernstein and Nina Bernstein Simmons.
Cooper co-wrote the script with Oscar-winning screenwriter Josh Singer.
Cooper developed the film together with Bernstein’s family. Maestro is Cooper’s follow-up to his directorial debut, A Star is Born.
Sarah Silverman can currently be seen in her Off-Broadway R-rated play The Bedwetter, a musical based on her memoir of the same name. Cooper just wrapped his time in the Marvel universe where he voiced Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame and Thor: Love and Thunder which opens next month.
