Director Steven Spielberg has chosen his follow up to the critically beloved Lincoln, and Bradley Cooper wants to sign on.

American Sniper is based on the true story of Chris Kyle, a Texan turned Navy SEAL known as “the devil” by Iraqi insurgents.

Kyle holds the record for most confirmed kills as a sniper.

About a year ago, Cooper signed on as producer with intentions to star. The actor continued to push the project forward after Kyle was tragically killed on a shooting range by a fellow veteran suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

The script is based off of Kyle’s memoir of the same name.

Spielberg had originally been prepared to make Robopocalypse, which is now indefinitely delayed.
