Cooper is in talks to play Napolean Solo, the role that Robert Vaughn played on TV.
Next, the studio has to find Solo's crime-fighting partner in the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. David McCallum originated that role.
The movie, like the television show, will be set in the 1960s.
Cooper, who starred in Warner's "Hangover" movies, and is now filming the Weinstein Company's "The Silver Linings Playbook," which David O. Russell is directing. He's then scheduled to star in the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures "Paradise Lost."
Variety first reported the news.
