Bradley Cooper’s Biopic “Maestro” Set to Make Waves

2018 A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper’s first film as director, was a smashing success with fans and reviewers. At the 91st Academy Awards, this film was nominated for eight awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliott, and Best Adapted Screenplay. The film ultimately won the award for Best Original Song for its song “Shallow.” After a hiatus of five years, Bradley Cooper is making his directorial debut once again with the much-anticipated biopic Maestro, in which he will portray the great composer Leonard Bernstein.

Before Cooper took over as director

the picture had been in production for a protracted period of time. During that time, illustrious names from the film business, such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, had been considered for the director role. After seeing an early version of A Star Is Born, Steven Spielberg recommended Bradley Cooper to direct the movie and gave him the job. This movie has an extraordinarily outstanding cast, a favorable release date for award consideration, and it is scheduled to have its world debut at one of the most famous film festivals. If all goes well, it can replicate the success of “A Star is Born.”
