Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller to Star in THE PHILADELPHIA STORY on Broadway?

Showbiz411 reports exclusively that Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller may co-star in a production of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, set to hit Broadway this fall or spring 2017. According to the report, the duo, who co-starred in Clint Eastwood's AMERICAN SNIPER, participated in a recent reading staged by the Roundabout Theater's Scott Ellis.

Cooper recently returned to Broadway in THE ELEPHANT MAN for which he received a Tony nomination for Best Lead Actor. Miller starred in 2009's MISS JULIE and showed off her musical talents in the recent revival of CABARET.

Miller would take on the role of Philadelphia socialite Tracy Lord, originally portrayed by Katharine Hepburn in the 1939 stage production. Cooper would play Dexter Haven, a role made famous by Cary Grant in the 1940 film, directed by George Cukor. A revival of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, starring Blythe Danner and Frank Converse, opened on Broadway in 1980. The story was the inspiration behind the Tony-nominated 1998 musical HIGH SOCIETY.

The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, and won two; James Stewart for Best Actor and Donald Ogden Stewart for Best Adapted Screenplay. It was remade in 1956 as a musical, retitled High Society.
