Steven Spielberg has exited Warner Bros.' "American Sniper" over budget issues, TheWrap has learned.
Bradley Cooper remains set to star and produce via his 22nd and Indiana banner, though Spielberg's DreamWorks banner is no longer involved as a co-financier.
An individual familiar with the project tells TheWrap that Spielberg had a vision in his head for the movie that didn't align with the current budget.
Spielberg's next movie has not been decided. He originally intended to direct "Robopocalypse" after "Lincoln" but decided to delay that project in January.
