NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Ed Helms of “The Office” fame and Bradley Cooper are headed for a “Hangover.”
They are in final negotiations to star in director Todd Phillips bachelor-party comedy, about three friends who lose the groom at their Vegas fandango two days before the wedding. The third lead role has yet to be cast for the Warner Bros. film.
The project marks Helms’ first lead feature role to date. The “Daily Show” and “Office” veteran is currently in theaters with the Eddie Murphy bomb “Meet Dave.”
Cooper, a veteran of “Alias,” “Kitchen Confidential” and “Nip/Tuck,” appears in the upcoming Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You.”
Phillips, who last directed “School for Scoundrels,” is best known for such films as “Road Trip” and “Old School.”
