Fox Searchlight, which backed Del Toro’s Shape of Water, is producing the project. 

The film is on the novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham. 

The original starred Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell in 1947.

The story follows the rise and fall of a sleazy carnival barker who partners with a female psychiatrist for a routine.

If he signs on, Cooper will play the barker, Stan Carlisle. 

Del Toro wrote the new script with Kim Morgan.

The news comes in the wake of Cooper’s split with Irina Shayk last Saturday.

The exes began dating in 2015 and have a two-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine 

And it comes just months after Lady Gaga had to dispel rumors that she and Bradley were having an affair after starring in A Star Is Born together.
