Hollywood star Bradley Cooper has dropped out of spy comedy This Means War to concentrate on the sequel of his hit film Hangover. The film, which stars actress Reese Witherspoon as the female lead, was to start filming sometime this spring, but Cooper's departure has pushed it back until July.
A scheduling conflict has been officially cited as his reason for leaving the film, since Hangover 2 is gearing up to start shooting in October this year, reported Variety online.
The 35-year-old actor was to play a spy who battles over a woman with his lifelong friend, who is also a secret agent in This Means War. Movie bosses are now on the lookout for two leading men after Cooper walked out.
