“Limitless” gets TV series, Bradley Cooper to reprise role

LOS ANGELES: Bradley Cooper is set to reprise his role on a TV show that will be based on his 2011 hit “Limitless”.


CBS has ordered a series on the movie with “The Amazing Spider-Man” director Marc Webb attached to helm.

The actor is expected to play a recurring role as Eddie Morra, who found himself able to learn faster and recall memories from his distant past after taking a mysterious drug NZT.

His character, now a senator climbing his way to become President of the United States, mentors a guy who just came across NZT.

The story in the TV version, however, will focus on the new guy named Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) who is coerced into using his newfound drug-enhanced abilities to solve weekly cases for the FBI.

Neil Burger who directed the movie was initially attached to helm the pilot but he had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict with Showtime’s “Billions”.
