Bradley Cooper and Will Arnett are attached to star in "Is This Thing On?" which is in early development at Searchlight.
Cooper is attached to direct the movie and both Cooper and Arnett will also star in and produce the film that has a script written by Arnett and Mark Chappell.
Is This Thing On? is the latest creative collaboration between Will Arnett and Bradley Cooper, and as it's very early on in development there are very few details available in terms of the plot or any other rumors of casting.
Cooper is a nine-time Oscar nominee for writing, producing and/or starring in American Sniper, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, Nightmare Alley, Joker and A Star Is Born, which alone earned him three noms. He is in post-production on the Netflix drama Maestro, which is follow-up directing gig to A Star Is Born.
A seven-time Emmy nominee, Arnett burst onto the scene with his Emmy-nominated role as Gob on the iconic Fox series Arrested Development. He also voiced the title character of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman. His film credits include The Lego Movie and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchises, Blades of Glory and Semi-Pro. He most recently appeared in the documentary SmartLess: On the Road, which follows Arnett, Sean Hayes and Jason Bateman on the North American tour of their podcast SmartLess.
