Bradley Cooper has reportedly signed on for the remake of the German hit comedy-drama Kokowaah for American audiences.

The Silver Linings Playbook actor will star in the film and potentially make it his directorial debut, Deadline reports.

The 2011 German film was co-written and directed by Til Schweiger, who also starred in the film alongside his daughter Emma Tiger Schweiger.

Kokowaah is about the relationship between carefree bachelor Henry (Schweiger) and devoted dad Tristan (Samuel Finzi), who must re-evaluate their lives after learning the truth about who the father of Tristan’s eight-year-old daughter really is.

Cooper will produce the Kokowaah remake with Sheroum Kim.
