Bradley Cooper Transforms Into Leonard Bernstein in “Maestro”

Netflix has released some photos of Bradley Cooper fully transformed into a renown broadway composer, Leonard Bernstein in a biographical drama “Maestro” which backed by Netflix.

The photos depicted Bernstein in a different stages of life, with amazing make-up works applied to Cooper to capture his aged Bernstein. Cooper stars with fellow Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan, Matt Bomer and Maya Hawke. Mulligan plays his wife Felicia Montealegre. Cooper co-wrote the script with Oscar-winning “Spotlight” scribe Josh Singer. The drama spans more than 30 years. Produced by Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger, Bradley Cooper, Fred Berner and Amy Durning.

As Cooper confirmed to Variety earlier this year, production on “Maestro” started this month. But subscribers will get the chance to see the film until 2023. When the project was launched, director Steven Spielberg was originally attached to helm a Bernstein biopic and recruited Cooper to star in it. But Cooper was coming off receiving the rave reviews from “A Star Is Born,” so his interest gear towards more writing and directing movies than taking on an acting role for someone else, even Spielberg.

“I always felt like I could play a conductor, but may I research the material and see if I can write it and direct it? Would you let me do that?’” Cooper said. “Steven has a lot of interests — he’ll just choose one thing and all of the other things will be on hold. I think he knew he wasn’t going to make that movie for a while. He was kind enough to hand it off to me, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last four and a half years.”

Cooper recently appeared in Guillermo del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley.” His 2018 directorial debut “A Star Is Born” had a successful run at the box office, earning $436 million worldwide and eight Oscar nominations, including best picture.
