Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master screened Thursday night in Chicago, allowing IndieWire to post its review.

Bradley Cooper will begin shooting The Hangover Part III very soon (the sequel’s due in theaters in May), but the actor’s also circling a handful of other projects, according to THR. The trade says he could play the male lead in Clint Eastwood’s A Star is Born remake. And Variety attached Cooper’s name to the 1950s-set crime thriller Bad Blood and Trouble, directed by J. Blakeson. Audiences also will be able to see Cooper in David O. Russell’s next black comedy The Silver Linings Playbook, which opens in theaters on Nov. 21.
 
Variety also notes that Without a Trace star Marianne Jean-Baptiste has been added to the cast of Jose Padilha’s RoboCop. She’ll play Chief of Police Karen Dean, and joins an ensemble that includes Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Laurie, Jay Baruchel and Michael K. Williams.
