Steven Spielberg To Direct American Sniper Movie, Starring Bradley Cooper

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Steven Spielberg will be directing a movie adaptation of Chris Kyle’s autobiography that will star Bradley Cooper …

Steven Spielberg has found his next directing project: an adaptation of American Sniper, the autobiography of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, which is set up at Warner Bros.

 Bradley Cooper is attached to star and has been developing the project as a producer.
A first-quarter 2014 start date is being targeted.

I hope Spielberg and Cooper do justice to the memory of Chris Kyle.

Many thanks to Ryan for the tip.

    Chris Kyle was a top notch killer and his service won’t be forgotten. That being said, he deserves a better eulogy than some overly sentimental Spielberg crapfest.

      Yes he does but I will say all-in-all Spielberg did a bang-up job with Saving Private Ryan. He even employed military amputees for the beach scene. Hopefully he will honor Mr. Kyle’s memory properly.

      Our dear leader managed to find the time to pick up the phone and call a birth control gal and a gay basketball player (both perfectly fine with me) but Kyle’s family has heard nothing. Had to get that off my chest…….

        Has anyone made a petition to have the current administration apologize for ignoring him?

        • 277Volt

          That dickhead and his administration couldn’t care less about a real American. Mr. Kyle and his family are much better off without whatever mealy-mouthed insincere crap our Dear Leader would run out of his yap. Having any of those scum say anything about Mr. Kyle would be nothing but a skidmark on the legacy of a great, great man.

          I don’t know what you are complaining about. My grandfather and great uncle passed away this year and they were WW2 vets, they didn’t get any personnel recognition from the President.

        • Hey guys remember no politics—- Thanks

          • Shane

            Don’t censor us! You can’t have the 2nd amendment w/o the 1st!!!!!!

        • John184

          From a political point of view, the president can’t divert extra attention to a fallen hero just because he killed the most people. That’s not really sending the right message. I’m sure he isn’t ignored, but if Chris Kyle gets recognition, then every single fallen soldier, Marine, airman or sailor will get it as well.

          Sorry for bringing politics into this, but that’s just how it seems.

        • 277Volt

          Suffice it to say Mr. Kyle is getting all the right accolades from all the right people.

  • TangledThorns

    This will be a anti-gun film so expect Michelle Obama to present the award and thank Hollywood for being in favor of gun control.

    • Saving Private Ryan wasn’t

      • Besides, I heard Spielberg is fairly okay with gun ownership. He just lies low with that for obvious reasons.

      • TangledThorns

        Have you seen Munich? Wasn’t exactly a pro Israel film.

        • Esh325

          What does being “anti-gun” have to do with Israel?

        • FourString

          Munich wasn’t exactly pro or against anyone—it discussed the meaninglessness of cycles of violence/revenge. I don’t see what your point is lol

    • Esh325

      Don’t be foolish. What movies of his were “anti-gun”?

      • Yellow Devil

        Hollywood loves guns so much they will use them in as many movies as they can and as long as they can make a buck out of it. But than of course, the litany of Hollywood actors/actresses came out during the gun debate to voice their displeasure at the right to bear arms for the average citizen (summed up by the embarrassing performance by the has been Jim Carrey). So basically, like so many of our politicians, Hollywood operates on the basis of rules for thee, but not for me.

  • gunslinger

    “inspired by true events” = change the facts around to make the movie more dramatic and not a representation of what actually happened.

    • lolinski


  • Joel

    Same thought here. I hope that justice is done for Chris Kyle.

  • stsheetrock

    Now that’s fact on Hollywood played by Bradley Cooper. Steven
    Spielberg is digging his own grave this time. This Zionist really has gone mad.
    He lost his mind after directing Schindler’s List horsemanure. You must be
    kidding! Spielberg to dramatize the Biography of Donald Rumsfeld’s TOYBOY
    Redneck Psycho Mercenary who sported shooting 225 ill-elders, pregnant-women
    and sleeping-babies in Anbar. Chris Kyle collected his victims’ ears and
    fingers as trophies to fortify his wins and dole ‘em to Rumsfeld. Rummy loved
    to use them as dildos to milk his prostate. Steven Spielberg is sick as Rumsfeld.
    Man! I was always wondering – why Spielberg adored shirtless underage boys on
    his logos. Chris Kyle stood no chance to sniper a rat in Fallujah – he will be
    dead long before unpacking his shotgun. Nice Mugshot though. Watch Kyle’s body-language.
    Nothing but a loser failing Photoshop. When it comes to worthying the worthless
    and glorifying criminals. CNN is FOXNEWS. Before he takes his life and blame Tsarnaeva
    Brothers for it, Chris Kyle was GUNDOWN by a Beer-Lout while shooting
    scarecrows of Dixie. This movie project must be funded by Saudi Arabia as Schindler’s
    List to show how helpless Muslims’ ill-elders, pregnant-women and
    sleeping-babies sniperd by contract killers if they ever rebel against Thugocracies.
    That’s Saud Alfaisal said: ‘I will chop anybody’s finger if he ever pointed at House
    of Alsaud’. AMERICAN SNIPER movie sends a powerful message to the world: “that’s
    OK to kill Muslim’s and make a mockery of them for fun”. Wow that’s Good signal
    for Taliban to bomb movie houses than marathoners.
