Abbie Cornish (The Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga’Hoole) and Oscar-winner Robert De Niro (Machete) are set to star opposite Bradley Cooper (Midnight Meat Train) in director Neil Burger’s (The Illusionist) new mind-bending thriller Limitless.
Based on the book “Dark Fields” by Alan Glynn, Limitless is the story of a struggling copy-writer (Cooper) who finds financial success after stealing an experimental pharmaceutical drug called MDT-48 that makes people smarter, but slows down their perception of time.
Cornish will play Cooper’s character’s ex-wife, while De Niro takes the role of the powerful financial mogul out to get him.
A drug that makes people smarter would probably make folks realize they shouldn’t be taking drugs. Sounds like a market-killer to me. I’ll stick to pushing meth, thank you.
