The Hangover Part 2 star will offically star in the big screen adaption of the 17th century religious poem "Paradise Lost."

"Paradise Lost, that seems like the realest one. That's happening," he told The Huffington Post.

Currently Cooper is in Schenectady, NY, prepping to film The Place Beyond The Pines with Ryan Gosling. He will play a rookie cop in the crime drama.

"We've just been sort of hanging out with all the cops here and going on ride alongs and it's been incredible," the actor said. "It's pretty intense, it's definitely pretty intense. I'm very lucky to be able to do stuff like this."

In addition to those two movies, the aspiring screenwriter is adapting Dan Simmons' "Hyperion" novels for the big screen.
