Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper are shooting the suspense thriller Limitless directed by Neil Burger (‘The Illusionist’) with a screenplay by Leslie Dixon (‘The Thomas Crown Affair’). The production has been shooting in Philadelphia and yes I am a part of this film! De Niro plays a financial mogul, Gennady, hot on the tail of Cooper’s character, Eddie Spinola, who discovers a designer drug that makes him smarter and basically better than the rest of us.
The film will also feature a phenomenon called “trip-switching” where time moves with a stop-motion quality which will be interesting to see on the big screen.
De Niro has several films being released this year, including ‘Little Fockers,’ the indie drama ‘Stone’ and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete.’ Bradley Cooper will next be seen as Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck in ‘The A-Team,’ opening June 11th.
Limitless will be released March 18, 2011.
