Bradley Cooper’s second film as director sees him playing Leonard Bernstein – and a first image from the production has landed.

Almost unrecognisable underneath prosthetics that will almost certainly be in the running come awards season, Bradley Cooper’s second directorial outing after A Star Is Born will see him play musical icon Leonard Bernstein in Maestro.

Bernstein’s life would be enough to fill several Broadway shows in and of itself, from being blacklisted from Hollywood to being Oscar nominated for his score to On The Waterfront and composing the iconic score to West Side Story.

We now have a synopsis for the film, which reads as follows:

The lights are going down and the orchestra is tuning up — it’s almost time for Maestro to take the stage. Bradley Cooper’s Maestro is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein (Cooper) and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein (Carey Mulligan). A love letter to life and art, Maestro at its core is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.

Rounding out the cast are Jeremy Strong, Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor.

As well as directing, Cooper co-wrote the script for this one with Spotlight scribe Josh Singer. There’s considerable power behind the scenes, producing the film are Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and Todd Phillips, amongst others.

Maestro will be released in US cinemas before streaming on Netflix on the 20th December.
